Missing TV presenter found dead on Greek island

SYMI, GREECE – British television presenter Michael Mosley was found dead on a Greek island on Sunday following an extensive multi-day search, as confirmed by his family. An anonymous police officer, restrained by an active investigation, reported that a body was discovered on a rocky shore by a private boat, with formal identification yet to be carried out.

She extended her gratitude to the residents of Symi Island for their unwavering efforts in locating her husband. The locals, although unfamiliar with Mosley, willingly dedicated their time to aiding in the search.

The island’s mayor, Lefteris Papakalodoukas, revealed to that he and a few representatives of the media were on a boat when they spotted a body about 20 meters above the Agia Marina beach. The mayor perceived that Mosley had taken a tragic fall down a steep, rugged slope, coming to a halt against a fence and his body partially covered with some rocks.

While the retrieval process of Mosley’s body was underway, a police officer experienced a fall and required assistance to be evacuated from the scene, according to local media outlets. Mosley’s body is slated to be transported to Rhodes Island for an autopsy.
