Body Found In Tenerife Barranco

February 6, 2013

National Police are investigating the cause of the death of a woman whose body was found yesterday in Barranco de la Verdellada, in the town of La Laguna Tenerife after being alerted by a member of the public.

In a long and difficult operation, due to the inaccessible terrain, police and rescue services eventually managed to retrieve the body, which has yet to be identified.

However, investigators would not be drawn on whether the body could be that of 40-year-old Ana Isabel Gonzalez, who disappeared from her home in the La Laguna area last week.

An autopsy is expected today to establish cause of death and the identity of the victim.
