Dutch woman found  in Ayamonte

Missing Dutch woman Brenda Paduch, 39, has been found by a journalist from Dutch TV show Vermist (Missing) in Ayamonte, Spain (see Algarve Resident December 10 edition and story online).

Pim Faber, chief editor of TV show Vermist (Missing), told the Algarve Resident: “Brenda spoke to my colleague on December 9 and she is very confused. She suffers from psychological problems and hadn’t taken any medication since she went missing.”

Brenda went missing on August 23 this year and had told a journalist from a Portuguese newspaper that she had run away from home because of a quarrel with her boyfriend.

“She doesn’t want to go back to Holland and her family does not know what to do. If Brenda doesn’t want to go back, no one can force her,” said Pim Faber.

A Dutch citizen, who also helped in the search for Brenda, has provided her with accommodation in Moncarapacho, where she is believed to be staying, assisted by a nurse.
