Palma.—The focus of the investigation is firmly fixed on Palma and Calvia, where the two wanted men attempted to kidnap two teenage girls, but the Guardia Civil has been put on alert across the Balearics.

The Guardia Civil and the National Police have a list of over 100 white vans registered with the traffic department and are slowly working through the owners of each and every one of them, apart from the ones they are stopping and searching at check points in Calvia and Palma.

As the police continue their hunt for the two men aged between 20 and 40 and it has also come to light that two other girls reported the fact that they were being followed by a white van through Magalluf. However, that has been investigated and the van belonged to a newspaper delivery man.

Day by day, the Guardia Civil and the National Police are gathering more information about the two suspects.
A team is also combing over CCTV footage recorded by cameras in Portals on February 9 and a road off calle Aragon last Sunday, the days of the two attempted kidnappings.

Yesterday, sources close to the investigation revealed that the police have established that both men were wearing very unusual sports sun glasses and police claim they are now able to begin compiling indentikits of the two men which can then be passed out to all the island's police forces.

As the vehicle checks continued yesterday, the police said they were making the most of the situation to check drivers' paperwork and crackdown on petty crime in general.
