‘Disturbing’ case of missing Brit teen in Majorca of ‘highest priority’ for Spanish cops

A major police search is currently underway in Spain for a missing British 15-year-old girl, who was last seen over three weeks ago.

Emina Alice Winterbotton disappeared on August 31. Her parents notified the police that she hadn’t returned home.

Spanish investigators have called the case “disturbing and of the highest priority”, the Sun reports.

The teenager is described as being 5ft7ins tall with long chestnut hair and big green eyes, according to a missing person’s notice issued by officials.

According to Emina’s social media accounts Emina hails originally from Manchester, but she now lives and works in Palma.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the emergency number 091 (if they are in Spain).

Majorca is a popular destination for Brits and is home to more than 16,000 UK expats.

Emina disappeared after another British girl was reported missing from Majorca earlier in 2019.
