The voice of the mayor of Cercedilla (Madrid), Luis Miguel Peña, when talking about the search for the Spanish skier Blanca Fernandez Ochoa, which has resumed today with four hundred people and three helicopters of the National Police, Civil Guard and Community firefighters from Madrid, who alternate to make searches.

The extensive search device deployed in the Sierra de Madrid to try to locate the Olympic skier and medalist in Cercedilla, an area where his car was located this Sunday, has been expanded this Monday with more than a hundred volunteers.

Her car was found this Sunday in the parking lot of Las Dehesas, where a device has been installed in which hundreds of agents participate, rescue groups at height (Gera), Civil Protection, Fire and Local Police, with the support of five Dogs and three helicopters.
