Another of the little girls missing in Tenerife has been found dead, Spanish media reported.
Olivia, the older of the girls, 6-year-old Olivia, was found in Kassi, sunk into the seabed, tied to an anchor belonging to the children's father's boat.
The information has been confirmed to the local media by the Supreme Court of the Canary Islands and the local National Guard.
The body was found Thursday night at a depth of a thousand meters, less than five kilometers from the shore.
Another bag was found in the search, but it was empty.
Olivia's 1-year-old sister Anna is equally missing.
The children’s father, Tomas Gimeno, 37, is considered the main suspect in the case.
He, too, has been missing all along.
The search for Spanish girls began just over six weeks ago.
The previous turn in the investigation took place on Monday, when the sonar found objects belonging to the children's father on the seabed.
