Missing man's body found on East side

The body of Glen Migge 29 who was reported missing on Thursday at Eastern Beach after having been swept by the waves was recovered on Saturday, an Royal Gibraltar Police spokesman confirmed yesterday.

An RGP spokesman said:

“Following a report received by police at 13.38 hours on Saturday March 19th 2005 from a member of the Gibraltar Motor Cycle Club to the effect that a body had been sighted at a cove beneath the East Side cliffs by Dudley Ward Tunnel, police officers attended and the authenticity of the report was confirmed.”

“Due to the inaccessibility of the cove from the road, the assistance of the City Fire Brigade was requested and shortly after a body was recovered with the aid of a CFB abseiling team under the command of station officer Estella.”

“Once recovered the body was identified as that of the late Glen Migge 29, of 17 Mallard House Laguna Estate who had been reported missing to police at 23.30 hours on Thursday March 17th after having been swept away to sea by a wave while at Eastern Beach by the reclamation area.”

“The Coroner Charles Pitto and the Forensic Medical Officer Dr Salem were in attendance. The body was then conveyed to St Bernard’s Hospital Mortuary pending a post mortem examination. A Coroner’s Inquest touching upon the death of Glen Migge will be held.”
