Not only is that not the case - but concerns have escalated and the search has been extended. I have added the poster to the latest issue of Live in Spain Magazine (as that covers all of Spain and beyond) - I am adding it here in case readers, not in Javea at the moment, were here and spotted her around the time that she disappeared on May 20th. A letter in which she wrote goodbye to her family has changed the nature of the investigation. Khrystyna Savenchuk, a 15-year-old student from IES declared that she had little desire to live and indicated despair over the break-up with her German based boyfriend. Search focus has now moved back on Javea, away from Sagunto (where her mobile phone was found on the afternoon of her disappearance). Given the awful possibility that Kyrystyna may have been suicidal, the Guardia Civil is searching her favourite places on Cap de Sant Antonio, working with the local police of Jávea and volunteers from Civil Protection, locally. The coastline has also been searched from the sea. In essence, Khrystyna disappeared last May 20. She was last seen about eight o’clock in the Holy Calle Cristo del Mar. Khrystyna left home without her backpack and with no money. Her passport and everyday jewellery were also left - she took only her phone (found at Sagunto). Gaile Editor
