THE father and aunt of missing expat girl Amy Fitzpatrick are urging Spanish police to follow up a ‘new line of inquiry’ into the 15-year-old’s disappearance.
Government officials have agreed to meet with Christopher Fitzpatrick and Christine Kenny to discuss the case.
Irish politician Mick Barry has now urged to Department of Foreign Affairs to prompt Spanish authorities to reopen the case.
“I think the Government should act by respectfully prompting Spanish authorities to re-open this,” he said. “For legal reasons I cannot discuss the new line of inquiry in any more detail.”
Amy was last seen on New Year’s Day in 2008 when she went missing from her Mijas apartment where she lived with mum Audrey Fitzpatrick and stepdad Dave Mahon.
Mahon, 45, was sentenced to seven years in prison this year after he was found guilty of killing Amy’s brother Dean Fitzpatrick in a broad daylight stabbing in Dublin.
