The search for 23-year-old Harry Stagg from East Cowes, who hasn’t been seen or heard from since November, has now widened to the whole of Spain.
As previously reported by Island Echo, Harry left the Isle of Wight late last year to travel to his grandparent’s home in Malaga, Spain for Christmas. He never arrived.
It’s known that Harry made it to Spain having crossed the border from France. On 29th November he tried to call his family from a Police station in Huesca, but the call was missed.
Family and friends want to know that Harry is safe and he is now being encouraged to ‘turn himself in’, according to The Olive Press.
There have been 3 possible sightings of Harry. The first came on 13th December at the Galp petrol station in Antequera, north of Malaga. The second was on 13th January on the N-340 in the direction of Almeria, not far from Lucainena de las Torres. The same person then saw who they believe to be Harry again the next day on the N-340 between Fort Bravo and the Oasys MiniHollywood tourist attraction.
Susan Stagg, Harry’s mum, has said:
“There is a possibility that Harry doesn’t have a clue that people are worried.
“We have been getting concerned, I thought he would have been up at my dad’s at Christmas.
“My children didn’t have mobile phones until they could afford them, we’re not one of these families who sit around on their phones. I know him and Kim had been conserving money by camping in wooded areas, so he may be in one of those.
“I’ll be 51 next week, so it would be nice if he could ring me on my birthday”.
