Miss­ing tourist in Gata found safe and well

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

An ap­peal to help find a miss­ing tourist in Gata de Gor­gos gen­er­ated an over­whelm­ing re­sponse this week­end with over 50 lo­cal res­i­dents and vol­un­teer groups join­ing in the search. Martín Gianello, 55, from Madrid, was last seen in the Paseo de Ali­cante area on Satur­day evening, but he was found safe and well on Wed­nes­day morn­ing. He had turned up at a GP surgery in Mo­raira af­ter walk­ing through Gata, Reg­u­lada and Benissa and was 'tired and dis­ori­en­tated', ac­cord­ing to med­i­cal staff. They had dif­fi­culty at first find­ing out who he was, and asked if he re­mem­bered his tele­phone num­ber. He did, and staff called Martín's wife and put him on the line – at which point he re­port­edly broke down in tears. She col­lected him im­me­di­ately and took him home. Lo­cal po­lice thanked all those who gave up their time, in­clud­ing the Civil Pro­tec­tion squad and the USAR13 group, plus dozens of mem­bers of the pub­lic.
