Laura del Hoyo, 24, and Marina Okarynska, 26, disappeared six days ago and their families fear they may have been kidnapped or hurt by Marina's ex-boyfriend.


The two friends went missing last Thursday in Cuenca, after they were supposed to be going to visit Okarynsaka’s ex-boyfriend’s house to collect some of her belongings following the couple’s break-up last month.

They have not been seen since and neither has the ex-boyfriend, who police say has previous convictions for violence against women and served a prison sentence for kidnapping.

Polices sources have told Spanish newspaper El Mundo that they are looking for two suspects, the ex-boyfriend  "who was in prison for kidnapping another girl," and also "another former prisoner".

A car belonging to del Hoyo was found parked nearby the ex-boyfriend's house and belongings including her mobile phone and daily medication were found within.

The Civil Guard have launched a public appeal for information on the two missing women.
