The mother-of-one was 32 when she was reported missing from Guadiaro on November 9.

Her disappearance was yesterday raised at Prime Minister’s Questions by Martin Docherty, Scottish National Party MP for Dunbartonshire West.

“I will certainly look into this case, and make sure the Europe Minister meets with him (Docherty) to make sure everything is done for Lisa’s family as soon as possible,” said Cameron.

Docherty revealed that Lisa’s family have visited Spain seven times to help the search.

He added: “While the Spanish authorities state they have been working on this case there have been various pieces of misinformation in the Spanish media which we know not to have been helpful.”

Much of the coverage of the case has focused on Lisa’s boyfriend, Liverpudlian businessman Simon Corner.

He disappeared himself days after Lisa, but later released a statement from Thailand claiming he was ‘innocent’ and vowed to clear his name.

He was then reported to have landed in Spain two weeks ago to answer police questions, but Algeciras police have not confirmed whether such a meeting has taken place.

His legal advisor Jason Coghlan, a reformed criminal, initially coordinated Corner’s trip to Spain but has now cut ties with him and refuses to comment.

Meanwhile, Lisa’s brother Craig Douglas told the Olive Press he believed the visit was a ‘hoax’ and that Corner has not come to help police in the search for Lisa.

Lisa’s son Marco, eight, is currently living with his father Tony Tomillero in La Linea de la Concepcion.

Lisa had been due to start a new job at a gaming firm in Gibraltar the day after she disappeared.

During last summer, she was often seen visiting Corner at his boat in La Linea’s Alcaidesa Marina, where she would sunbathe.
