THE lifeless bodies of two bathers who went missing in Cala Raja (Almeria) have been found.
A Lithuanian man and a woman, aged 30 and 36, had disappeared on Sunday while swimming in the waters of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park (Almeria).
A search had started at about 3.15pm when a witness called 112 to say that a man and woman had got into difficulties while swimming.
Several people went into the sea to help them but were unable to reach them, as they were trapped in a rocky area.
Emergency workers started a search, but were beaten back by a strong swell and fierce winds.
As darkness fell the search was abandoned for the night.
The bodies were discovered shortly after 1.30pm on Monday in the same cove.
