09:50 |

The Spanish government has acknowledged that the lack of a breakthrough in the case of Amy Fitzpatrick (15) is a "growing concern". Possibly as many as 200 Spanish police officers are set to take part in an intensive search of the area where an Irish teenager was last seen over a week ago. Civil Guard officers and police have been assigned to this latest search, over six times the manpower used in the initial searches. Interior ministry's officials search for Amy is an "absolute priority" for the Civil Guard. They will be extending their search to an area 12km in radius and are believed to be bringing in specialist search teams with sniffer dogs and a helicopter.Volunteers were also asked to gather at the Calla Mijes football field, which is beside the school that Amy went to two years ago.Amy's mother, Audrey, and her family in Spain are due to hold a news conference later this evening.The Spanish press is linking possible similarities between the disappearance of Dublin-born Amy and the high-profile cases of two local teenagers, Rocío Wanninkhof and Sonia Carabantes, who were abducted and murdered in 1999 and 2003 respectively.
