AN urgent appeal has gone out from the Guardia Civil for volunteers to help search for a missing British in Coin, near Malaga on the Costa del Sol.
People are being asked to assemble at the Los Tubos (Toblerone) bridge on the outskirts of the town at 11am this morning (Tuesday) – see location below.
Guardia Civil officers and Civil Protection volunteers will also join the search alongside specialist sniffer dogs.
Roger Hanks hasn’t been seen since last Tuesday before the area was hit by severe flooding late in the day and in the early hours of the Wednesday morning.
Roger is described as around 1.7m (5ft 7in) tall but walks very badly with bandy legs and slightly bent over with medium to thin build.
His face is weather-worn with a prominent, hooked nose, few if any teeth and he has greyish hair.
He has a push bike with him most of the time.
He was last seen Tuesday, October 9 by the ‘Toblerone’ bridge.
