Appeal to find missing Antonio Ortega in Malaga

MISSING: 32 year old Antonio Ortega ©National Police

THE family of the man who disappeared in Torremolinos have made an appeal through the Council to find him.

Antonio Ortega, 32, left his home at 11am on January 21 to walk his dog without any money or documentation, and has not been seen since.

His mother has shared a video on social media to publicise the case and try to find any clues to help locate him.

At the moment there is no information as to Mr Ortega’s whereabouts, despite the search effort that has been undertaken by 70 people throughout the northern mountains of the town.

National Police are continuing the tracking operation and believe there is still a possibility that he has lost his way in the bordering areas of Torremolinos with his dog.

Residents across the entire Costa del Sol are being asked to be attentive and contact the police, the council, or his family if they see a man matching Antonio Ortega’s characteristics.

This is particularly relevant to the towns of Benalmadena, Malaga, and Alhaurin de la Torre.

Mr Ortega has short brown hair, weighs 72 kilos, measures 1.80 metres and requires medication.

He was wearing black sweatpants, a white sweatshirt with a red hood and blue sneakers.

If you have any information please call the helpline 642 650 775.
