IT is almost five years since waitress Agnese Klavina disappeared after being bundled into a car by two British men on Spain’s Costa del Sol. Her phone ran out of power five hours later. Since that day her bank account has not been touched and her Facebook page has not been updated. Agnese’s whereabouts are unknown after she was last seen leaving a club over four years ago And yesterday her sister Gunta told The Sun: “Although it pains me to say so, I believe she’s dead. I hope one day her body can be found. That would change everything. It could give us clues and open up doors that are currently closed.” Latvian Agnese vanished after spending the evening with friends at Aqwa Mist, a nightclub in Puerto Banus where the likes of Hollywood actress Eva Longoria and boxer Amir Khan have partied. The 30-year-old, dressed in a multicoloured halterneck dress, got talking to a woman she met there and stayed when her friends left — a decision that was to prove her downfall. CCTV images from the early hours of September 6, 2014, show her outside the club getting into a Mercedes with two men. One of them is 41-year-old Westley ­Capper — the huge, bald, privately educated son of a multimillionaire property ­developer from Essex. The other is his best mate Craig ­Porter, 37, from Liverpool. A criminal psychologist told a court in Marbella that Agnese’s facial expressions and body language in the footage indicated she did not leave the club ­voluntarily. Capper admits he tried to persuade Agnese to go back to his home on the exclusive El Madronal estate — a 20-minute drive from the club — to carry on partying. But he insists he dropped her off on the way after she told him: “Stop here — I’ve changed my mind. I want to go home. This is where I live.” Agnese was wearing high heels — and the place where Capper said they stopped was a 40-minute walk from her apartment. Porter told the court he was “drunk and tired” and fell asleep on the journey to his pal’s house. He says he only discovered Agnese was no longer with them at the end of the journey. “I WANT TO GO HOME” State prosecutor Maria del Carmen Tirado told the court that Agnese got into the men’s vehicle “with fear”. She said: “The images show that when she left that nightclub she didn’t want to go with Capper. She perceived the danger. Capper and Porter were the last people she was seen with and she entered their car because she was coerced.” Agnese, the girlfriend of a London club owner, was never seen again. Investigators discovered that Capper and several others drove to Murcia to collect a yacht just a few hours after Agnese disappeared. They sailed the Geofil II to Fuengirola. Four days after Agnese vanished, Capper and Porter were seen with two other men lugging a pair of suitcases and a carpet on board. The boat left from Puerto de la Duquesa, near Gibraltar, on September 10. Three days later, Capper and Porter set sail for Ibiza but ended up docking at La Manga. They claimed the vessel’s engine had failed. On September 15 they returned to Marbella by car. Agnese, who had spent several years in London, arrived in Spain the previous May. She landed a job at a restaurant in Marbella and most days spoke by phone to her boyfriend Michael Millis back in London. He became concerned after not hearing from her for a few days and called friends. They knocked on Agnese’s door but got no reply. Michael says: “I called the police to file a missing persons’ report but they said I had to come to Spain.” He flew out on September 11, while Agnese’s distraught mother and sister travelled from their home in the Latvian capital, Riga, to begin their own search. TWO SUITCASES AND A CARPET Police eventually arrested Capper. His father John, who sold luxury villas in high-security estates, has all the trappings of super wealth — a private jet, yacht and access to expensive lawyers for his son. During the trial in Malaga, ­Capper admitted drinking beer and vodka and taking drugs the night Agnese vanished. But he insisted she got into his car “willingly” after they met in the club and agreed to go back to his home — despite failing to persuade a girlfriend she was with to go with them. He refused to answer questions from lawyers acting for Agnese’s family but told the state prosecutor he had held her waist because she was “drunk and staggering”. A police investigator, referred to in court only by his service number 11483, said Agnese had a steady job and friends and had given no indication she was unhappy. He told the court: “It surprised us that Capper had decided to leave Agnese where he did, on a road where there was not good lighting and no pavement.” He added: “It would have been difficult for a young woman in high heels to get to her home some 40 minutes walk away.” Capper claimed: “It was a well-lit area and I knew the turning near where I dropped her was full of houses. She said that’s where her house was.” Jorge Hoz, Capper’s lawyer, said: “The only evidence that is undisputed is that Agnese Klavina left the nightclub and got into a car driven by my client which Craig Porter was a passenger in. “The rest is conjecture and ­speculation.” He said all the CCTV footage showed was that Capper had tried to persuade Agnese to get into the car but she entered the vehicle “of her own free will”. Inma Garcia, Porter’s defence lawyer, insisted: “None of the evidence has shown my client participated in any crime and that is because he is innocent.” Searches of Capper’s boat and the car found no traces of blood or DNA. Last Friday the court in Malaga cleared Capper and Porter of ­kidnap but found them guilty of coercion — a lesser crime. Capper was sentenced to two years and Porter got six months as an ­accomplice. Neither is expected to be jailed because Spanish courts routinely suspend sentences for two years or less for first-time offenders. Later this year Capper will face a ­separate manslaughter charge over the hit-and-run death of a mother-of-three on a zebra crossing near Marbella while allegedly high on alcohol and cocaine. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN WORLD NEWS” posts_category=”14″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] He has already confessed to killing Fatima Dorado in May 2016 and is expected to receive a two-and-a-half year jail term when the case goes to trial. Porter was a passenger with him in the Bentley that hit Bolivian immigrant Mrs Dorado but he is not facing prosecution. Last night Agnese’s sister Gunta, 36, said: “It was very difficult facing the men in court.  We did it because we thought we could see justice done.  We plan to keep on fighting for the truth to come out.” Capper was cleared of kidnapping Agnese but will face a ­separate manslaughter charge over the hit-and-run death of a mother-of-three on a zebra crossing Porter was also cleared of kidnapping Agnese but was found guilty of coercion CCTV images show Agnese getting into Capper’s Mercedes on the day she disappeared Agnese has been missing since September 2014 The lawyer for Agnese claimed at the start of the trial she was probably ‘at the bottom of the ocean’ Agnese’s  family said they were very disappointed with the judges’ verdict GOT a story?

Former Days of our Lives star Shawn Christian Talks Hallmark and Missing Days. Shawn Christian portrayed Dr. Daniel Jonas on Days of our Lives from March 4, 2008, to January 6, 2016, when his character was killed off by his best friend, Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) who was drinking and driving. Since, Christian dove into roles such as Famous in Love, Seen in Idaho, and The Rookie. Most recently, Soaps.com kept our readers up-to-date with word that the actor would next be seen in Love in the Sun along with Emeraude Toubia (Shadowhunters), a Hallmark summer movie that will air during their Countdown to Summer event on May 27 at 9:00 PM. We recently spoke with Christian about his new role, Dr. Jonas, working with his daughter on the Ruby Herring Mystery series, and celebrating Mother’s day. Soaps.com: Tell us a little about Love in the Sun and a little about your role. Shawn Christian: “Love in the Sun is a story I wrote where a young lady (my daughter) arrives to tell me she believes she found her future husband on her own dating app. However, when she arrives at his small island Inn she discovers real love is found through personal connection, not a digital algorithm. She also rediscovers a love she once shared with her childhood sweetheart. My role as her widowed father was a wonderful opportunity to create endearing father/daughter moments that reflect the hurdles in finding love again with the help of your children.” Soaps.com: You filmed this on location in Pinellas County, Florida. What was filming like and what did you do when you weren’t on set – for fun? Shawn Christian: “The Floridians welcomed us with open arms. The community of St. Petersburg, Safety Harbor, Treasure Island, and the whole Tampa area were not only excited that we were there, but many got a chance to participate in helping us on both sides of the camera. I actually ran into a wonderful lady who designs Hallmark cards while living in Florida! When I wasn’t on set filming I was exploring the beaches, local restaurants, rooftop lounges, and happened to stumble upon an amazing luxury auto show right along the waterfront in St. Petes. In fact, I had the good fortune to come across many fans who were surprised to see “Dr. Jonas” alive and well.” More: Arianne Zucker previews Days return Soaps.com: Speaking of the good doctor, you’ve been gone as Dr. Daniel Jonas on Days of our Lives since 2016. Would you ever return if asked or would you work on another soap opera? How does it compare working on Lifetime and Hallmark movies – are you more interested in the freedom the latter provides? Shawn Christian: “I’m always open to creative opportunities to tell stories in any shape or form. I certainly keep a special place open in my heart for working on Days or any other soap should an offer come my way. I always consider where my life is in that moment and make decisions from there. This genre has been so good to me that I’ve always considered it an honor to create with some of the hardest working people in show business. I really appreciate the freedom of traveling and the joy of meeting new people while filming on location for TV and films. But with the amount of energy I have, the kinetic pace and deep sense of family that daytime provides is something I miss dearly.” Soaps.com: Tell us a little about what it’s been like working with your daughter, Taylor, on the Ruby Herring mysteries. Shawn Christian: “I love and adore Taylor. Working with her from Summerland to Ruby Herring has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. To have watched her grow as a young lady and an actress in a business that is riddled with fallen starlets, I am proud to see she has kept her feet firmly planted on the ground. She possesses the same generosity, loyalty and loving spirit she had as a young girl, and to work with her now on Ruby Herring fills me with a joy that is immeasurable. I’m looking forward to sharing with audiences a Hallmark series that is truly a reflection of family love for years to come.” Soaps.com: Mother’s Day just passed. Can you tell us about how you spent the day? Shawn Christian: “I wasn’t with her on Mothers Day, but while I was filming Love in the Sun in Florida, she happened to be down there an hour away from set. So, of course, I drove down to see her on my day off. In addition to seeing my mom, I got to see my brother and his family who came down there for Spring Break! Being from Michigan, this was a pretty unique special occasion for all of us to get together down in Florida. Seeing my mother glowing while spending time with her two sons was an unforgettable Mothers Day gift.”
