THE Civil Guard have confirmed that body found earlier this morning on the coast of Santaño is that of Celia Cavia.
The forensic evidence confirms the identity of the body as the minor who disappeared on 12 December in Santander.
After confirming the fatal outcome, the delegate of the Government, Eduardo Echevarría sent a message of condolence to the family of the deceased minor, offering “all his support in these hard times of pain.”
According to reports from El Español, Celia participated in various extracurricular activities such as Dance and Theatre but was not going through her “best moment” having recently failed some subjects and had reportedly gained some weight. Some of her classmates had bullied her because of it.
Celia was considered by friends as a “happy person” and had participated in the Tei Program, a school programme based on the prevention of violence and harassment in schools.
On December 12, Celia told her classmates that she was a little unwell and she was allowed to leave the high school where she was a studied early, at 14:15, the last time she was seen alive.
As Euro Weekly New understands, instead of heading home, Celia went in the opposite direction, towards the Mataleñas area, almost an hour’s walk away. There, she arrived at a park, where she left her backpack and inside a farewell letter addressed to her parents.
The backpack and letter were the first clues found by the investigators.
The body of the minor was found this morning on the coast of Santoña, the police were able to match the young woman’s fingerprints and confirmed that it was Celia Cavia.
