Body found in Symi search for missing presenter Michael Mosley

A bar manager who was with journalists found the body, PA news agency reported, after the island’s mayor “saw something” by the fence of the bar and alerted 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.

“So when I walked up I saw something like a body.”

Rescuers had been searching the area every day with helicopters, he added.

One police officer who is part of the team trying to recover the body, apparently broke his leg and was moved away by boat.

A coroner has now examined the body. Police spokeswoman Konstantia Dimoglidou told the BBC authorities had to rule out any possibility that the death was the result of a criminal act.

“We need to get a first insight into the causes of death and whether [it] preceded the person’s fall to the ground,” Ms Dimoglidou said.

On Saturday, BBC News obtained CCTV footage showing one of the last-known sightings of a man believed to Dr Mosley walking with an umbrella next to the marina in the village of Pedi on Wednesday.

Greek authorities had been conducting an extensive search for Dr Mosley over five days amid high temperatures.

The effort has included firefighters, dogs, helicopters, drones, local people and officers from Symi and outside the island.

His four children had also joined his wife, Dr Clare Bailey Mosley, on the island.
