Olivia Gimeno Wiki – Olivia Gimeno Bio
Olivia Gimeno and her sister Anna, one, were taken by their father Tomas without permission on 27 April.
The body found inside a bag on the seabed off Tenerife has been confirmed as that of a missing six-year-old girl taken by her father weeks ago.
Investigators searching the water off the Port of Guimar found the bag tied to an anchor some 3,200ft (1,000m) below the surface, Spain’s Civil Guard said on Friday.
She was 6 years old.
Gimeno, 37, is believed to have taken the two little girls – Anna, one, and Olivia, six – on his boat, which was later found by the police off the east coast of Tenerife, in Spain’s Canary Islands. Traces of the father’s blood were located onboard. A child safety car seat was also found floating in the sea, and the Civil Guard has confirmed that it belonged to Anna.
The children were visiting Gimeno, who reportedly told his ex-partner in a telephone conversation that night that she would never see the children again, but that he would take good care of them. Investigators are following up on the theory that Gimeno was aided by one or more individuals to carry out a premeditated plan to kidnap his daughters, according to sources cited by the news agency Efe.
