A SEARCH is underway for a 41-year-old woman who has been missing since yesterday morning, after going hiking in Estellencs.

Her husband reported her disappearance when his wife did not return home after leaving the house at 9am, according to the Guardia Civil.

A search operation was launched at 10.20pm, but after being unsuccessful overnight, the mission was reactivated this morning.

The Guardia’s Special Mountain Rescue Group (GREIM) and a helicopter, are currently scouring the area.

Five climbers were rescued were involved in a hair raising rescue early hours yesterday morning after becoming trapped on a cliff edge in Sa Gubia, Bunyola, for 11 hours.

The group had reportedly been practising abseiling, but found themselves stuck and unable to descend.

Mallorca Fire Service confirmed the five hour rescue was extremely difficult ‘due to the night time conditions and access to the place’. They were brought to safety without injuries.

And last week, Mallorca fire fighters rescued a couple who were trapped in the rising torrent of Pareis, in Escorca, having spent the night waiting for help.
