Search for Missing Man Continues

Manuel Luis, who is both deaf and mute has been missing from his home in Santana since last Friday.  With the clock ticking firefighters, Public Security Police, friends and family are racing against time to find him.  During the weekend officers used a drone to try and locate the man who was seen in Achada do Teixeira shirtless and carrying a green bag.

Unfortunately, despite everyone’s best efforts, the man is still missing.  His niece, Elsa Caires has issued an appeal via social media asking for as many people as possible to help find her uncle stating that he needs all the help he can get.  Currently, interested parties are searching for the man in groups and are targeting cafes and busy shopping areas.  Although last seen in Achada do Teixeira the search area has opened up to include Santana, Faial, São Jorge, Machico and Caniçal.

If you have any information that can help Elsa find her uncle, please call 963 722 403
