Fears for missing Dutch expat, 26, who vanished from Spain’s Costa del Sol almost a WEEK ago

THE family of a missing Dutch expat are desperately searching for answers after a WEEK with no sign of the 26-year-old. 

Dylan Schepens went missing from Benalmadena, Malaga on Friday, April 12. 

He was staying in ‘Welcome Hostel’ in the town and is reportedly ‘not in a good mental state’. 

According to his LinkedIn profile, the young Dutchman was in Malaga to work for Webhelp as a Customer Lifecycle Manager. 

He is described as 182cm tall, with a normal build, brown eyes and brown hair. 

Dylan speaks both Dutch and English. 

The desperate plea for help was posted on ‘Expats in Malaga’ Facebook group by a family friend. 

They asked anyone with information to contact his mother, Claudia Van de Sande, from Bussum, the Netherlands, on 0031611404645. 

Police have been informed of Dylan’s disappearance and friends say ‘any help would be appreciated’.
