While British holidaymaker Ronald William Foster was fast asleep at a guest house in Inca, little did he know that over 50 people, a helicopter and teams of dogs were part of a massive search for the man thought to have been lost in the area between Alaro and Lloseta. The search, which involved the Guardia Civil, the Local Police, firemen and the Civil Protection department was mounted on Tuesday night and came to a close yesterday afternoon when the 55-year-old man was found safe and well rested after his night's sleep. Apparently the British tourist had paid to stay two nights at a mountain refuge in Alaro and when he failed to show by 21.45 hrs on Tuesday night, the Guardia Civil were informed. Police found his clothes and belongings in his room, but there was no sign of the Briton. The alarm was raised and a search and rescue operation swung into action. In total 50 people took part in the search, unaware of the fact that the hiker had been in Mancor de Valle as night started to fall and feeling tired took a taxi to Inca where he rented a room for the night. However, not far away from Inca, the search team with dogs headed up into the hills in the dark to try and find the 55-year-old.
