Mrs Butler
Missing holidaymaker Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Butler has been found safe in Tenerife almost three days after she disappeared. The 68-year-old from Kilkenny was located late last night in Roque del Conde after she was recognised from posters.

Mrs Butler, an Alzheimer sufferer and diabetic, disappeared just one hour after arriving in Tenerife from Dublin on Sunday morning for a one-week family holiday.

She vanished as she waited for members of her family to check-in at the Esmeralda Playa Hotel. Her niece Olivia and several local Irish ex-pats spent the three days combing the area and putting up posters asking for information on her whereabouts.

Mrs Butler was admitted to hospital in Playa de Las Américas last night and treated for dehydration after her ordeal.
