MISSING teen Amy Fitzpatrick‘s dad has revealed how the family have been targeted by a torrent of online abuse.
Since 2015 the family have received 300 threatening emails from a sick troll, who claimed Amy has been living in the US after she went missing in 2008 from Spain’s Costa del Sol.
The anonymous online hater has already sent the family 37 emails this month and also claimed that Amy, who vanished when she was 15, had been to France.
Amy’s dad Christopher told The Sun: “This person has been making all sorts of allegations and he seems to be obsessed with the case.
“I don’t know why they’re doing it but this is just giving us false hope, it’s only adding to the trauma and heartbreak we have endured all these years.”
Christopher’s son Dean, 23, was killed by his ex-wife Audrey’s partner Dave Mahon in 2013.
Mahon, who was diagnosed with throat cancer in prison earlier this year claimed Dean had run into his knife during a heated argument in an ‘attempted suicide.’
Dean’s murder came just five years after his sister went missing as he walked to her Mijas Costa home on New Year’s Eve 2007.
Speaking at the sixth annual Missing Persons Day yesterday, Christopher also told The Sun: “All I am asking for is more support for families because they are all in a living hell.”
