THE sister of Jacqueline Tennant, the British woman missing in Majorca since October 8, is back on the island leading another search of the Victoria Mountain in Alcudia.

Monique Tennant, along with members of the Guardia Civil, the Civil Proteccion and local British volunteers, including those with hiking experience, is spending today and tomorrow searching four possible routes she believes her sister may have taken when she went missing while hiking on the mountain last October.

The team of 10 or 12 members was due to begin searching at 10am.
This latest search of the area where Monique was last seen is based on information provided by two British tourists who contacted the BBC after seeing an item on television about her disappearance.

The couple said they had seen a black woman walking up the mountain while they were coming down it on the day that Jacqueline went missing.
Monique Tennant has been aided in her efforts to find her sister by her local MP, Andrew Pelling.
The Croydon MP has briefed the Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, and the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, is on the case.
Jacqueline Tennant (45), a keen hiking enthusiast, went missing just days before she was due to return home to the UK.
She had spent the summer working as a swimming instructor for the First Choice Holidays company in Alcudia.
A trip the two sisters were planning to see their father, Everard, in Jamaica had to be cancelled when Jacqueline went missing. Sadly, Everard died in Jamaica on New Year's Eve.

Monique is also hoping that information contained in Jacqueline's email account may provide further information about her sister's movements on the day she went missing.

Microsoft has released the information to the courts here but, as yet, Monique has not been able to see it, and is looking at obtaining legal authorisation in order to do so.

This is the latest of several trips Monique has made to Majorca in search of her sister. This latest trip coincides with the funeral of her father but she is determined to carry on looking until she knows what happened last October.
