British TV star Michael Mosley, known for his health programs, was found dead on the Greek island of Symi after a rigorous search operation. The 67-year-old had been missing since Wednesday.

The British television star and doctor, Michael Mosley, who was reported missing since Wednesday, has sadly been found dead on the Greek island of Symi. His body was discovered on Sunday by a film crew from the Greek public channel ERT, who were filming in the area where Mosley had vanished. The 67-year-old media personality was last seen taking a solitary walk on one of the island's beaches.

Mosley's disappearance prompted a significant search operation by Greek authorities, who intensified their efforts over the following days to find the popular doctor known for his innovative diet advice and television appearances. Tragically, Mosley's body was located near a rocky coast, and police confirmed that he had been deceased for several days.

A call for witnesses was launched on Facebook, where Mosley’s relatives posted his photo, hoping for information regarding his whereabouts. Emergency services, volunteers, and specialized units, including a dog brigade, a drone, and a helicopter, all participated in the search. Despite these extensive efforts, it was a film cameraman reviewing footage who noticed something unusual that led to the discovery of Mosley’s body.

Michael Mosley, a father of four, had left his wife at the beach to embark on a hike from Agios Nikolaos beach but did not return to his accommodation, which led his wife to report him missing. Mosley, notably absent with neither cell phone nor navigation device, had ventured into a treacherous area. His sudden disappearance and the discovery of his body have left both the local and international communities in shock and grief.

Mosley’s career as a media doctor began in 1985 when he was hired as a health consultant by the BBC. Over the years, he became a household name through his programs dedicated to medicine and health across various British television networks, most notably on BBC One’s 'The One Show' and ITV’s 'This Morning.' He was also the host of the podcast 'Just one thing' on BBC Radio 4.

  • The island of Symi is known for its rocky terrain and remote beaches, which are often best accessed by boat. The search operation highlighted the difficulties posed by the island's geography. Local residents expressed their concerns and confusion about why Mosley would go hiking in such challenging areas without proper equipment.
  • During the search efforts, a specific area near the village of Pedi and the beach of Agia Marina was heavily focused on, based on a report from a woman who claimed to have seen Mosley there on the day he went missing. Extreme temperatures, reaching up to 40 degrees Celsius on the day of his disappearance, added further challenges to the search operations.
  • Authorities explored multiple scenarios regarding Mosley's disappearance and death, including the possibilities of an accidental fall, a slip, or even a snake bite, which might have left him incapacitated in the rugged terrain. Despite all efforts and the community's hope, the outcome was a tragic one.
