GRAN CANARIA – Hundreds of people were searching on Monday for a missing seven-year-old boy.
Yeremi Jose Vargas has not been seen since Saturday.
Police, aided by about 400 local residents, were searching the island for any trace of the missing boy.
Rubbish lorries have emptied their loads in case Yeremi has climbed inside and got stuck.
Police were mounting a house to house search in the hope that the boy had somehow become trapped and was still alive.
The last time he was seen he had been playing with two cousins of his own age near his parents home in the area of Gran Canaria known as Los Llanos.
When they went inside to eat, Yeremi did not join them and when his absence was noticed the famiy went out immediately to search for him.
They have searched in all the wells in the area in case the boy could have fallen inside one.
