Missing British woman sought by Interpol spotted in Turkish resort of Marmaris
MUĞLAA 63-year-old English woman who was reported to have gone missing three weeks ago and is the subject of a search by Interpol has been found in a three-star hotel in the Turkish Mediterranean resort town of Marmaris, Doğan news agency reported May 26.
Lynn Fitzgerald reportedly left home in the United Kingdom last month, telling her family that she was going to spend a week of holiday in Turkey, but the woman extended her holiday without telling her family about her change of plans. Fitzgerald did not contact her family during the period but continued to engage in cultural and historical tourist visits while staying at the resort.
The Fitzgerald family turned to Interpol after they lost contact with the woman.
Following a search undertaken together with Turkish officials, Fitzgerald was located at a three-star hotel in Marmaris’ İçmeler neighborhood. Turkish authorities, hotel staff and a translator accompanied the woman to a hospital, where a medical report was issued. Fitzgerald was reported to be smiling during the procedures.
After legal procedures at the police station, Fitzgerald was sent home to Britain with a guide accompanying her during her travel.
Marmaris police authorities said they had spotted three English women sought by Interpol, including Fitzgerald, in the town in the last week and had sent them home to Britain.
