Yeremi Vargas - Abducted from outside his home on Las Palmas.

(1/2) > >>

Mr Moderator:
Yeremi Vargas (7) disappeared from a plot of ground outside the family home in the Spansh town of Vecindario, Las Palmas, Canary Islands, on 10th March 2007.  This date is somewhat significant as a mere three months later little Madeleine McCann (3) was also to disappear, this time from the sleepy resort of Praia da Luz on the Portuguese Algarve.

Your first reaction might be to think that this was just coincidence, that the two incidents were unrelated and unconnected.  But what if I were to tell you that two Scottish paedophiles were seen in both towns at the time of the disappearances.  That these two individuals were quite happy to talk to investigators about the McCann case but refused point blank to discuss Yeremi's disappearance.

Yeremi Vargas shortly before he was abducted from outside his mother's home.

Mr Moderator:
Who was/is Yéremi Vargas?

Yéremi, sometimes spelled Jeremi, was a seven year old child who disappeared March 10, 2007, from a plot of land beside his house, where he was playing. His mum saw him play with his yellow bucket as she came home from the store with Yeremi's grandmother. She told him to come inside soon for lunch. He was never seen again. They lived in the Spanish island of Las Palmas.

When she realised what happened, she and the rest of the family started ringing the neighbors' doorbells until a crowd of nearly 100 people was out looking for him. They found the yellow bucket in the gutter behind the Vargas house.

His mum doesn't believe he could have gotten lost or left willingly, as he is a shy and fearful child and instead thinks someone took him. The plot of land lies between two streets, the one Yéremi's house is in and another one. His grandmother believes that someone called him over from this second street, without them realising.


The police don't think Yéremi could have been taken out of the island, as they were made aware of his disappearance within the hour and subsequently closed airports and ports.

According to the Mirror Spanish and Portuguese police are looking into a possible connection to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, who went missing from Portugal just eight weeks later.

This is what Yeremi's mum has to say about both disappearances:

"Jeremy may still be here in the town. It only takes a cellar to keep a child hidden and this town has hundreds of cellars. Perhaps they are sold to families without children or to paedophiles. Either way, I believe my son and Maddy are still alive.

"These are not typical attacks on children they are different - and yet similar to each other."

There's also another lead about two convicted British pedophiles who traveled to Yeremi's neighborhood and resided there for some time during 2007. Apparently, British press calls them the dirty rats because they posed as exterminators to get into their prey's houses. Here's the link where I found it if you'd like to look more into it. Further info about them can be here. (warning: spanish links). Here's an English article

Spanish police don't seem to think there's much to go on there and don't expect to pursue this lead for long. (source). They also say they have another 3 "hot leads" they can't comment on.

Apparently, one of them was also believed to be in Portugal when Maddy went missing. They were investigated but never charged with anything. This is a very tenuous link.

El ministro del Interior, Jorge Fernández Díaz, ha confirmado el hallazgo de un cráneo en Gran Canaria y ha precisado que "se va a comprobar si pudiera ser de Yéremi Vargas", el niño desaparecido en la localidad de Vecindario en 2007.

Así lo ha avanzado en una entrevista en RNE recogida por Europa Press en la que, no obstante, ha pedido mantener la "elemental prudencia". El hallazgo, según fuentes de la Guardia Civil, se ha producido en las inmediaciones de esa localidad del sureste de Gran Canaria.

Las fuentes han precisado que el tamaño de los restos podrían corresponder a una persona de edad aproximada a la de Yéremi, que desapareció en la localidad de Vecindario cuando tenía siete años.

Alerta de un vecino Una alerta dada por un ciudadano que informó del hallazgo casual de restos humanos cuando paseaba por un solar de la zona de El Doctoral de Santa Lucía de Tirajana sobre las siete de la tarde de ayer activó a la Guardia Civil, que envió de inmediato agentes al lugar para investigar los huesos encontrados, según han confirmado fuentes del instituto armado.

Y han precisado que lo hallado hasta ahora es parte del cráneo de una persona de edad infantil y que, tras vigilar el lugar durante la noche en espera de que la luz diurna facilitara el trabajo, esta mañana se ha procedido a acotar el solar en que se encontró para iniciar una búsqueda más amplia por si se localizaran más restos u otros indicios que pudieran aportar información sobre su origen e identidad.

Un equipo del laboratorio criminalístico y personal de la policía judicial de la Guardia Civil toman parte en esa búsqueda, han añadido.

Desde el instituto armado han admitido que no se descarta que los restos pudieran ser de Yeremi Vargas pero han subrayado que "todavía es muy temprano" para confirmar que eso sea así o que, por el contrario, los huesos sean de otra persona.

Por ello, han pedido "prudencia" y, sobre todo, "respeto a la familia" del pequeño, a la que han explicado que se informó del hallazgo desde el primer momento, ya que "el contacto es permanente" con ella desde que ocho años atrás se produjera la desaparición del niño, pero advirtiendo de que todavía no se podía hacer afirmación cierta alguna.
