Michael Mosley: New images show search operation ramp up as panic grows in searing heat

Newly released images show that the search for Michael Mosley continues as the TV doctor has been missing since Wednesday 5 June while on holiday in the Greek island of Symi.

TV doctor Michael Mosley went for a walk from Saint Nikolas Beach and has not been seen since, prompting a large-scale search operation involving divers, police, firefighters, and sniffer dogs. New pictures reveal rescue efforts continuing for a fourth day in the 30C heat.

CCTV images have surfaced showing Mosley half an hour after he left the beach before he vanished.

Rescuers describe the search as a “race against time”.

The son of a man who went missing on a Greek island in 2019 has urged Dr Michael Mosley’s family not to give up their search, emphasizing that “human beings don’t just vanish”.

The Mosley case bears striking similarities to his father’s, John Tossell, a 78-year-old man from Bridgend, who disappeared on the Greek island of Zakynthos five years ago this month.

Tossell was on the third day of his holiday with his partner, Gillian, when he disappeared after a walk to visit a monastery on Mount Skopos. Despite an extensive search, Tossell remains missing.

“When I read the story it’s like a cut and paste of my father,” Gary Tossell, John Tossell’s son, told Sky News. “He went for a walk and he vanished into thin air. As a family, we got together and said this is surreal. It’s the same story but a different person.”

Gary expressed deep empathy for the Mosley family, saying: “I wish nothing but love to the Mosley family as I know exactly what they’re going through and it must be awful for them out there at the minute. I want to tell them not to give up.”

Regarding Michael Mosley, CCTV footage showed the TV personality dressed in a dark shirt and cap, with an umbrella. A local also calimed they wintessed Mosley waiting at a bus stop. 

“In some ways the mystery has only deepened. Now we have to ask where did he go from there, and if he took another unexpected route [to the port town] did he slip and fall? We’re still no nearer to solving this”, a senior police officer said.

As the search for Michael Mosley continues, his family remains hopeful, and authorities urge anyone with information to reach out.
