Body found in search for missing TV doctor Michael Mosley

The 67-year-old, known for his appearances on TV programmes and BBC Radio 4’s Just One Thing podcast, vanished on Wednesday while on holiday on the Greek island of Symi.

The alarm was raised by Dr Mosley’s wife, Dr Clare Bailey, after the husband and father failed to return home to their accommodation after a walk.

Shortly after, a post appeared on Facebook raising concerns about his disappearance.

It read: “Have you seen this man? He set off to walk back from St Nick’s at about 13.30 and failed to make it home.

“His friends are concerned as it is 6 hours since they last saw him. His name is Dr Mike Mosley and he is a familiar face for many British people as he has appeared on the BBC.”

Greek police, firefighters, tourists and local volunteers have been focussing their search on a rocky area north of the village of Pedi, where he was last spotted.

The news comes less than 24 hours after Dr Bailey thanked the local authorities and search party for their efforts, and added: “We will not lose hope.”
