Cork man missing in Spain last seen in pub asking directions to Malaga

‘Concerned’ |

Ken Moore was on vacation along the Costa Blanca but did not return home as planned on October 7.

Ken Moore, 54, was last known in Alicante on the weekend of October 7-9.

He was on vacation along the Costa Blanca but did not return home as planned on October 7.

According to The Olive Press, Moore’s sister, Tanya Foley, said she contacted him when he hadn’t arrived at the airport because he “wanted to stay a few more days.”

However, his family could not contact him after that.

A witness has now reported seeing Moore at The Tavern in Orihuela Costa Villamartin, around 70km south of Alicante, between October 15 and 17.

Sharon Davies recalled speaking to him one morning while working in the pub and told The Olive Press he asked for directions to Malaga, a five-hour drive away.

“I was at The Tavern cleaning around 7:30 a.m. three weeks ago and he repeatedly asked if he could have a pint,” she told the publication.

“I told him I couldn’t serve him and it was quite early in the morning, then he asked me how far away Malaga was.

“I said it was far enough and he should at least get there by train or plane, then he left.”

Ms Davies, from Stoke-On-Trent, added that Moore seemed “unkempt”.

She said she saw him again later that morning having a beer outside The Winchester in Villamartin Plaza around 9.30am.

He then wore a t-shirt and shorts and carried a black backpack.

Moore, who works in construction, left Cork for Valenica on September 17 and spent some time in Alicante before planning to continue traveling along the Costa Blanca.

His sister filed a missing person’s report with gardaí in Cork, who contacted Spanish police about Moore’s disappearance.

“It is very unusual for Ken to be out of contact for an extended period of time, so we as a family are calling anyone who may have encountered Ken while he was in these places to contact us,” Foley said in an online. statement.

“We are very grateful for any useful information, no matter how small. (sic)”

Moore is about 5ft 8in tall with brown hair and blue eyes. He wears a black earring in his left ear.
