The Guardia Civil have recovered a body in the sea off Mallorca and for the moment it is not ruled out that it could be one of the two crew members who disappeared recently in the Minorca Channel while on a sailing trip.

However, given that the body is in very poor condition, it will be necessary to wait for DNA tests.

The Guardia Civil are involved in two rescue operations.

Sources from the Guardia Civil have said that a helicopter and members of the Special Group of Underwater Activities were involved in the operation.
