Gran Canaria - 18.09.2015 - Yeremi Vargas vanished while playing in the street outside his grandmother's house in Vecindario on 10 March 2007 and no trace of him has ever been found despite a prolonged police investigation, which has included interviews with known child sex offenders here and in the UK. Speculation that tragic closure was about to be brought to the case surfaced on Wednesday night following the discovery of a skull and bones not far from Vecindario and initial reports that they belonged to a youngster. Yeremi's mother Ithaisa immediately said she was "prepared for the worst" but that she hoped the remains were not those of her son, who she believes "is still alive and will turn up" even after almost a decade. "Until we are told otherwise, Yeremi is not dead. We are going through a terrible time permanently, particularly when news like this breaks" said the distraught mother. Hours later, police sources revealed that the skull was that of an adult woman, not a child, and may have been buried on the waste ground as part of satanic ritual. Checks are being made of a nearby graveyard to see if remains were stolen. In parallel, files on women missing in Gran Canaria have been reopened in a bid to identify the remains. Back in July, it emerged that two young people who had been trolling Yeremi's parents for over two years on social media with cruel and taunting messages about the boy had been identified by the authorities.
