Body Found in Search for Missing TV Presenter Dr. Michael Mosley on Greek Island

by Mohammed Ahmed

Greek police and coastguard officials have discovered a body on the island of Symi, close to where TV and radio presenter Dr. Michael Mosley disappeared last Wednesday. The decomposed state of the body suggests it has been there for several days.

Dr. Mosley, 67, went missing after setting off on a walk from Agios Nikolaos beach. The body was found in a rocky area beside Agia Marina beach on Sunday. The formal identification process is yet to confirm if the body is that of Dr. Mosley.

Symi’s mayor indicated that the body was found during a coastline search with cameras. A police source stated that the deceased had been dead “for a number of days.” The body was located next to a fence, a few meters away from where children were playing in the water at Agia Marina beach.

The discovery was made by a bar manager and journalists after the mayor saw something unusual by the fence of the bar and alerted the staff. Agia Marina bar manager Ilias Tsavaris said, “They called me, they said ‘You know what, we saw something from far away, can you go and check’. So I went there. When I walked up I saw something like a body.”

Dr. Mosley was first reported missing after leaving Agios Nikolaos beach around 1:30 PM local time on Wednesday. His wife reported him missing when he did not return.

Dr. Mosley studied medicine in London and was known for his work as a presenter, documentary maker, journalist, and author over the last two decades. He gained prominence through TV programs such as “Trust Me, I’m a Doctor” and BBC Radio 4’s “Just One Thing” podcast. He frequently appeared on BBC One’s “The One Show” and ITV’s “This Morning” and was a columnist for the Daily Mail.

Dr. Mosley is also known for popularizing the 5:2 and Fast 800 diets, which advocate for intermittent fasting and low-carbohydrate meals. While he was qualified as a doctor, he was no longer registered as a medical practitioner.

The discovery of the body has cast a shadow over the search for Dr. Mosley, and the formal identification will be awaited with hope and trepidation
