Reconstruction of the facts
Anna and Olivia Gimeno have been missing since the night of April 27.
On the afternoon of that Tuesday, Gimeno picked up her youngest daughter at the home of Beatriz Zimmerman, the girls' mother, and later went to Die Villa Camp, near the German School (municipality of El Rosario), where her daughter is studying. greater, as stated in the Civil Guard report.
Between the ex-partner there is no regulatory agreement or court ruling for the visits of the minors, so they had been carried out by mutual agreement.
According to the complaint, at 9:00 p.m. the mother went to Gimeno's house to pick up the girls, but no one responded.
When calling him on the phone, the man said that he had gone out to dinner with them and that when he finished he would take them to the woman's home, in the town of Radazul (also in El Rosario).
Shortly before 10 pm, as there was still no news from her ex-husband, Beatriz Zimmerman phoned him again.
This time, the content of the conversation was very different: according to her testimony, he replied that he was not going to see his daughters or him again, and not to worry, that he was going to take good care of girls.
The mother then went to the Civil Guard post in Radazul to report the events.
At the barracks, at 10:30 p.m., he called Gimeno again, who answered him in the same terms.
At 11:45 p.m., the girls' father's phone signaled off or out of coverage.
The one who was his partner spoke to him again at 1.30.
According to the report, during this call they have a "long conversation in which they talk about things about their relationship", and in which Gimeno tells him that "he is going to go far and that he is not going to see the girls again. ”.
The next day, Beatriz Zimmerman returned to the police station.
Then he informed the agents that Tomás Gimeno's parents had told him that their son and the girls were at his home around 7:30 p.m. and that, when he left, he used a tone "that the parents interpret as farewell."
Gimeno, as reported by the girls' mother, would express herself in a similar way after communicating with her ex-partner's friends and close circle.
