LIS and Tage Hyrup are combing the area to the north of Son Dureta every day in a bid to find Ivan Andersen's body.

THE family of 48-year-old Danish holidaymaker Ivan Andersen are sadly fearing the worst after he mysteriously walked out of Son Dureta hospital on the night of Sunday July 10 and has never been seen again. Mr Andersen was on holiday with his wife and three children at a hotel in Puerto Cristo. They had arrived on July 8. Two days later, Mr Andersen suffered sharp cramps all over his body and fell injuring his face at the hotel. He was taken to a private clinic in Palma, but later started suffering from serious confusion and could not even remember where he was. On the Sunday night he was transfered to Son Dureta hospital, where there is a psychiatric wing, but within hours of being admitted to an emergency ward, Mr Andersen, seriously confused, got out of his bed and walked out of the hospital. Nobody saw him leave and the hospital has told family members that they cannot stop people from voluntarily leaving the hospital. He left behind a bag containing all his money, some clothes and toiletries and the hotel still has his passport and he has not been seen again. A week later his wife returned to Denmark to look after the three kids, but colleagues at work and management raised the money to send Ivan's sister, Lis Nyrup and her husband Tage to Majorca to continue the search. According to Ivan's sister, the family contacted a clairvoyant in Denmark who says that Ivan is “lying still” on rock waste ground and the family are no longer expecting to find him alive. His sister and brother-in-law have been combing the wasteground and woodland to the north of Son Dureta since Sunday and will continue to do so all week. They have had a meeting with local police and the picture of Ivan has been distributed to all squad cars, but the police are centring their search on the city centre. The family however, is convinced the clairvoyant is correct and hope that the general public will keep their eyes out for Ivan Andersen's body if walking in the woods near the public hospital.
