Body of missing Navarra man found in submerged vehicle after storms

The body of a 61-year-old man reported missing yesterday, Friday, December 10, in the Navarran municipality of Elizondo, has been discovered today, Saturday 11. Firefighters of the Aquatic Rescue Group found his body in the river in Lesaka, trapped in the driver’s seat of a submerged vehicle.

With the river in flood, creating strong currents, along with low visibility, the Government of Navarra has reported that a rescue operation has had to be put on hold until tomorrow, Sunday 12.

A missing persons report had been made after the man left his home in the morning, heading to his job at Laminaciones de Lesaka factory, but never arrived at the facility. A search had been initiated yesterday, but it was not until this morning that divers found a vehicle under the floodwaters of the river.
