THE GUARDIA CIVIL have found no trace of a missing British man who was last seen on Saturday, November 23rd kayaking out of Torrevieja marina.
Kenny McPherson’s family fear that he may have been carried out to sea by strong currents and launched social media appeals for information on the 62-year-old Aberdeen man.
The Scots-born offshore survey engineer flew to the southern Costa Blanca last month to spend a few weeks at his holiday property in the Torrevieja area.
His step-daughter, 23-year-old Anna Mitchell said:- “My mum said he had kayaked when they had been abroad with a tutor but on this particular occasion he had decided he wanted to do a bit by himself.”
“He had just bought a kayak and had been out on the Friday before he went missing just down the road from where he was last seen. We were unaware he was going to go out on Saturday again.”
Mr McPherson´s neighbours saw him leave with the distinctive lime green kayak early on Saturday, November 23rd, and his car was left at Torrevieja Marina.
“The weather conditions early in the morning were good but we were told it got worse later in the day and the wind speed picked up around midday and the sea turned quite choppy”, Anna added.
