Family of Missing Lanarkshire Man Devastated as Spanish Police Close Investigation

The family of Gary Shearer, a 53-year-old man from Renfrew who disappeared while on holiday in Lanzarote, has been informed by Spanish authorities that the investigation into his disappearance has been closed. Shearer vanished just hours after arriving in Lanzarote to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 16, 2023, and despite extensive searches and appeals, his whereabouts remain unknown.

The news comes as a significant blow to Shearer’s loved ones, who have tirelessly campaigned for answers since his disappearance. The family, under the hashtag #FindGaryShearer, has endeavoured to keep his case in the public eye, hoping that new leads might emerge.

In a heartfelt social media post, a family representative shared the latest update with supporters: “A few weeks ago we, as a family, were told that Gary’s case would be closed by Spanish police, and they are not actively making any efforts to investigate any further. We still have no idea what happened to him or have any further information.”

The statement underscores the family’s determination to continue their search independently: “We will do everything in our power to keep Gary’s name out there and never let him or this story be forgotten but once again we will have no help from the police in this. We will continue to keep posters up etc in the hopes that someone will come forward and help us understand because we know that someone, somewhere definitely knows what happened that night.”

Gary Shearer’s disappearance has been shrouded in mystery from the beginning. After arriving alone in Lanzarote for what was supposed to be a festive celebration, Shearer vanished without a trace. Despite extensive efforts from both local authorities and volunteers, no substantial leads have been uncovered.

The closure of the case by Spanish police does not signify the end for Shearer’s family, who remain hopeful that someone, somewhere, holds the key to solving the mystery of his disappearance. They continue to urge anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, to come forward.

The family’s resolve to keep Gary’s story alive is a testament to their enduring hope and determination in the face of uncertainty. As they move forward without the support of an active police investigation, they rely on the public’s vigilance and compassion to bring Gary Shearer home.
