The niece of a British man who disappeared in Almería while on a walking holiday almost three months ago has spoken about the agonizing wait for news.
Experienced walker David Oldman, 66, from Leicester, went missing on June 9 after setting out on a 1,400-mile trek from London to Gibraltar.
He was last seen leaving the Hostal Zurich in Huércal Overa, where he had been lodging. Police launched an extensive search at the time, but this has been significantly scaled back in recent weeks. There have been no public appeals for information, either.
Gemma Oldman, 35, described her uncle’s disappearance as an “absolutely dreadful” experience. Speaking exclusively to CA News, she said: “We have no information, we seem to have no trace of him. The British embassy has been helpful – as much as it can be.”
