The 41-year-old former paratrooper Santiago Sanchez, embarked on a gruelling Madrid to Qatar road trip to watch the Fifa World Cup.

Before Sanchez went missing, he documented his journey on the popular Instagram account before disappearing the day after crossing into Iran three weeks back.

According to reports, the famous trekker last spoke to his family on 2 October after he sent an audio message confirming he had reached the Iraq-Iran border.

It is reported that Sanchez was also set for an interview in  Iraq’s capital with an unmentioned news agency.

“We are deeply worried; we can’t stop crying, my husband and I,” his mother, Celia Cogedor, “told The Associated Press.


Sanchez’s mother also confirmed that the family reported the case to the police on 17 October despite her son disappearing on 2 October.


“After a few days, we didn’t worry about him not posting; it matched what he had said. But after eight or nine days, my daughter and his closest friends … we already began to think that we had to report his disappearance”.

She added:

“He has not been making propaganda, neither for nor against any situation.

“The only thing that moves him is supporting Real Madrid — and walking to get on time to the World Cup in Qatar.”


Missing Sanchez is likened to Zimbabwe’s staunch football supporter Alvin’ Aluvah’ Zhakata, who also embarked on a similar journey in 2019.
