Today marks the third day in which a search is underway for a man thought to have got into difficulty in the sea off the north coast at Taganana in the Anaga area. The incident was reported on Tuesday afternoon, and although no-one has yet been found, it is not being taken as a mistaken report. Involved in the search so far have been a lifeboat, a GES search and rescue helicopter, Guardia Civil land and diving units, Protección Civil, and Santa Cruz Policía Local: emergency services say that the search is continuing today, with the missing person thought to be a 20 year-old foreigner in Spain.
