THE mother of two missing children has been detained by police in Spain after the woman in her 30s confessed where she had buried their bodies.
A huge search for the tots had been launched after the baby, just a few months old, and a three-year-old disappeared in Godella (Valencia) in ‘strange’ circumstances.
More than 150 officers of the Guardia Civil, the Local Police and Civil Protection volunteers, a canine unit, divers, potholers and helicopters joined the search at 11.30 am yesterday (Thursday).
A neighbour had alerted the 112 emergency services at around 8.30 am that he had heard screams in the morning and the mother had left the house.
It is reported that, after several hours of investigation, the woman confessed to killing her children and told police that she had buried them near their squatted house.
Both parents are in custody while investigations continue.
