Search for missing tourist in Lanzarote



The search continues for a British woman who vanished on a hiking trip in Lanzarote over Christmas.



Margaret Holt, 65, from the Wirral, was last seen on the Canary Island on 23 December as she left her hotel in the Costa Teguise resort to go for a hike.



Her family, who fear she may have fallen, contacted the Spanish Civil Guard to raise the alarm after she failed to make contact with them over Christmas.



Wendy Banks, Mrs Holt's daughter-in-law, wrote on a Facebook page appealing for information about her whereabouts: “We have her passport, cards from her room so we know she only intended to go for a walk.



“Her mobile phone is with her but not working. We really believe she had a fall walking.”



A Foreign Office spokesman said: “The Spanish authorities are carrying out a search coordinated by the Civil Guard and local emergency services.”
