WHEN a middle aged couple and their daughter became lost due to fog whilst climbing on La Concha above Marbella they knew what to do.

Although disorientated and unable to find their way down, they called 112 emergency services who in turn contacted the Marbella Fire Brigade.

Two firemen and two officers from the Guardia Civil Mountain unit were dispatched to the general direction in which they thought they had become lost and quickly found them.

The father who is British and his German wife and their daughter who travelled to the mountain from Estepona were not injured, just tired but were afraid to wander around without being able to see where they were going.

They were given food and water as well as directions and as the fog cleared, so they decided to continue walking so that they could safely descend from the mountain.
