A Dutch tourist has been found alive after going missing in southern Spain for a fortnight.

Mary-Anne Goossens was found between the towns of Nerja and Cómpeta, in a gorge near the Chillar river, according to Spanish media. She was found in a difficult to access area by three young hikers who gave her food and drink. The hikers raised the alarm once they were able to reach a spot where their mobile phones worked. According to the website of Dutch daily AD Ms Goossens is in a weak condition.

She was picked up by a Guardia Civil helicopter and taken to hospital. She is now believed to be staying with friends in Spain. The 48-year-old went to Malaga for a ten-day holiday.
