Search for missing teenager to resume in southern Spain

A major search is set to resume in Spain today for missing Irish teenager Amy Fitzpatrick.

A major search is set to resume in Spain today for missing Irish teenager Amy Fitzpatrick.

The 15-year-old Dubliner, who moved to the Costa del Sol with her mother three years ago, disappeared while walking home from a friend's house in Fuengirola early on New Year's Day.

Yesterday, more than 200 people combed a large area around the route Amy would have taken to walk home on the night she disappeared.

The search is due to continue today, but is likely to be scaled back if no trace of the teenager is found.

Some reports say police now believe Amy has run away, rather than being abducted.
