This week marked 100 days since the disappearance of Orihuela Costa youngster Henry Jiménez Marín. Henry’s family attended a mass on Wednesday to pray for his safe return and that the security forces and residents of the area do not forget about the disappearance of Henry.
For weeks after he went missing, Henry’s family and friends organised extensive searches of the local area where bands of volunteers combed urbanisations, parks and commercial areas in a desperate attempt to find the missing 20 year old. The family has been offered some support by the local community with fundraisers taking place to help pay for legal assistance and monitoring of Henry’s case. Alejandro, Henry’s brother, explained that the family have been kept in the dark by Guardia Civil investigating the missing persons case.
The family are devastated by Henry’s disappearance and to make matters worse, were victims of an attempted fraud by two people claiming to know of Henry’s whereabouts in order to extort money from his mother. To add insult to injury, a website this week posted a ‘fake news’ story about the discovery of Henry’s dead body.
The family continue to pray for Henry’s safe return and have launched a fresh appeal to the public to come forward with any information relevant to his disappearance.
