UK journalist reported missing found dead on Greek island

Michael Mosley, a renowned British health journalist and TV personality, was discovered deceased on Sunday on the Greek island of Symi, following his disappearance several days earlier. While the exact circumstances surrounding his death remain unclear, his body was found by individuals on a boat near the rocky coast.

The 67-year-old Mosley had gone missing last Wednesday after embarking on a coastal walk alone in the sweltering heat. His body was spotted by a television crew from Greeceā€™s ERT public channel, which happened to be filming in the area where he disappeared.

Mosley’s wife, Clare Bailey, confirmed his passing in a statement, expressing profound grief over the loss of her husband. She explained that Mosley had taken a wrong route during a climb and collapsed where he could not be easily seen by search teams.

Symi Mayor Lefteris Papakalodoukas also confirmed Mosley’s discovery, noting that he had been vacationing on the island with his wife at the time of his disappearance. Although the exact cause of Mosley’s death remains undetermined due to the delay in finding his body, Coroner Despina Nathena stated that there were no indications of foul play.

Before transitioning to a career in health journalism, Mosley initially worked as an investment banker, later pursuing studies in medicine. He subsequently gained recognition as a presenter, documentary maker, journalist, and author.
