AN ANXIOUS family have been reunited this afternoon (Friday) after they issued a public appeal to find Marie McManus who vanished almost seven weeks ago on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
They had appealed to expats living in southern Spain and holidaymakers – particularly in the coastal resorts of Benalmadena, Fuengirola, Torremolinos, Malaga and Marbella –
to circulate Marie’s details to help find her.
Marie McManus had used her credit card to pay for a hotel in Torremolinos on July 8 – and the card was last used on July 11 in the same holiday resort town.
Her mum was the last person to speak to her on July 15.
The Euro Weekly News was the first newspaper to break the story a week and this afternoon (Friday) we can reveal she has been located.
A source close to the family told us, “Her mum and brother flew to Spain yesterday after a tip off and she was exactly where someone said they seen her.
“They found her about 3 hours ago. She’s safe and ok.”
And Marie’s brother, Declan, confirmed to us, “Yes, we found her today.”
Declan added today, “We followed up a Facebook message I had received and got her in Marbella.”
Only a few days ago the EWN was told, “I have seen an appeal for information on Marie. I’m pretty sure I saw Marie sat outside Fuengirola train station on Saturday afternoon (25.08.2018) with a white dog (maybe chihuahua cross).
“I overheard the lady call the dog Jack. She had a green top on with shorts.
“I hope this helps.”
