Amy: Mystery theft in Spain

CRUCIAL documents regarding the disappearance of missing teenager Amy Fitzpatrick have been seized.

The one-million euro home of Spanish lawyer Juan de la Fuente in Benalmadena was burgled as thieves made off with vital paperwork and cash.

Bizarrely, the crooks however left behind some 30,000 euros in valuables, including expensive paintings and a plasma-screen television.

Recently, Amy’s mum Audrey and stepdad Dave Mahon had handed over a number of files related to the hunt for the Irish youth.

La Fuente, 32, explained that the burglars broke in via a garden gate.

“It makes no sense that they took documents which financially are worthless, and left behind all my expensive valuables like TVs, computers and music equipment.”

“The stolen documents included confidential police reports about Amy’s disappearance,” he said.

“It makes no sense that they took documents which financially are worthless, and left behind all my expensive valuables like TVs, computers and music equipment.”

And Mahon added: “We had handed over a number of important documents following our trip to Ireland.

“They were stolen, as well as some civil guard documents relating to the case.

“What is strange is that they left behind some very expensive valuables and a wallet which was left open on the side.”

In 2008, Mahon and Fitzpatrick’s home in Riviera del Sol was also broken into, with thieves making off with a laptop and Amy’s old mobile phone.
