POLICE have arrested an immigrant who was found wandering without food or water in the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

27-year-old Tony Brascons, who immigration officials believe is from the African country of Mali, was first located by a group of mountaineers at the summit of Veleta – at 3,392 metres above sea level, Spain’s second highest peak.

According to reports, the mountaineers gave the immigrant food and water before he set off for Mulhacén – the highest peak on the Iberian peninsula at 3,482 metres – where a park ranger alerted the police.

Police do not yet know how Brascons, who was dressed in jeans, a shirt and sandals, managed to reach the Sierra Nevada.
