Flood victim's body found after 11 days of searching

The body of 82-year-old Jacinto Bustelo, who went missing from his home in Vega de Villar (nr Vegadeo, Asturias) during the floods 11 days ago, has been found.

The body of his wife, Mercedes Díaz, was found close to her home the same day she was swept away by the rising floodwater.

Mr Bustelo's body was found by the Asturias fire service at 18h30 yesterday under a huge pile of earth and rubble about a kilometre away from his home.

Last Friday, after a week of fruitless searching, the fire service brought in heavy machinery to move earth that had been displaced by the floods.

With the help of family and friends with good local knowledge of the area, the emergency services' search centred on three main areas where it was believed the body could have ended up.

A number of items of clothing belonging to the victim were discovered during the course of the search, which had involved over 40 members of the police and fire service since it was started on June 11th.
