IT is now a month since British resort representative Jacqueline Tennant went missing in Majorca but neither the police nor the family have given up hope as they continue the hunt for the missing 45-year-old woman.

Yesterday, members of the Guardia Civil mountain rescue team, Civil Protection, fire fighters and volunteers started searching the Victoria area of Alcudia in the north east of the island.

Jacqueline was last seen at 9am on October 9 having breakfast at the hotel in Can Picafort where she had been working this summer.
Between mid-day and 1pm she received a call on her mobile from her supervisor and said she was “nearing the summit and the view was spectacular.” The problem is that no one knows where Jacqueline, a fit, healthy and experienced walker, had headed on her day off. Getting a fix on the signal of her last call would have proved crucial but the mobile company Movistar, despite having been issued with two Inca court orders to trace the call, have yet to comply.

However, the Guardia Civil, frustrated by Movistar's failure to trace the call, have managed to locate a probable area where Jacqueline went hiking.
Based on her known movements on the morning of October 9 and maps found in her apartment with a number of “mountains to visit” clearly marked, the searchers are combing a triangle in the North East of the island.

Over the past ten days, teams of searchers using tracker dogs and helicopters have combed the Sant Marti mountain to the back of Alcudia and the Formentor cliffs, yesterday the searched moved to the Victoria hills.

Yesterday, her family repeated their praise for the police and the search times and their pledge to “not give up.”
