Still no sign of British hiker in Nerja

gordon simm missing hiker nerja

THE Spanish authorities are staying positive about finding British hiker Gordon Simm despite the fact he has been missing well over a week.

The 63-year-old Yorkshireman left his hotel near the Chillar river in Nerja last Saturday, apparently with the plan of getting to La Cadena.

The Guardia Civil believe Mr Simm, an experienced walker who is very fit according to his family, may have lost his way in misty conditions and strayed off the path.

Mr Simm, a keen photographer and author of walking books, knows the area well.

The search has so far incorporated the fire service, helicopters, dogs and scores of volunteers, and has been extended to the highest part of the Chillar river, at 1,800 metres.

  1. we are praying and hope that Gordon is found alive and well. This must be a terrible time for his family and friends.

    In our thoughts Gordon and family.

    Julieann Rob and the 3 labradors.

  2. I’ve been a long distance walker since my teens, I was into power walking before the term was coined.

    If he has taken a fall, dehydration is the danger, let’s not forget that Dutch woman who was found after some time – fingers crossed for Gordon.
