Although the half buried body discovered at Amarilla Golf in the Municipality of San Miguel de Abona was discovered on Sunday, the body could only be lifted on Tuesday afternoon.
Officers of the Guardia Civil now confirm that the half buried body found at a construction site in Amarilla Golf in the south of Tenerife corresponds to Victor Alexis Morales Garcia, a man of 35 years who had disappeared on 8 February in Tenerife.
Victor is reported to have been a resident of the municipality of Granadilla in San Isidro, and was well known in the area by many local people for many years.
