Missing American Tourist Found Dead: Know More Here

179

On a small Greek island west of Corfu, the body of a missing American tourist was discovered on the beach, according to local media.

On Sunday, another traveller discovered the man’s body on a stony, somewhat isolated beach on the island of Mathraki.

His host, a Greek-American acquaintance, had reported him missing on Thursday.

Along with two other female tourists who have since left the island, the tourist was last seen on Tuesday in a cafe.
At this time, there were no other facts regarding the victim, such as name or hometown.

With a population of 100, Mathraki is a densely forested 3.9-square-kilometer (1.2-square-mile) island located west of the more well-known Corfu island.

This incident was the most recent in a long line of incidents when visitors visiting the Greek islands have either died or vanished.

Most, if not all, of them had embarked on hikes during scorching weather.

A fire department drone discovered the 74-year-old Dutch visitor face down in a ravine on Saturday, some 300 meters (330 yards) from his last known location last Sunday. The man was moving very slowly due to the intense heat.

Renowned British author and television host Dr Michael Mosley was discovered dead on the island of Symi last Sunday. He had passed away the previous Wednesday, a coroner concluded, not long after starting a trip across challenging, mountainous terrain.

On Sikinos, a relatively remote Cyclades island in the Aegean Sea with less than 400 permanent residents, two French tourists were reported missing on Friday.

The two women, 73 and 64 years old, had met at their respective hotels.

Authorities are still looking for a 59-year-old tourist who went on a solitary climb in extremely hot weather on Tuesday and was reported missing on the Cyclades island of Amorgos.

Albert Calibet, a retired Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff from Hermosa Beach, California, was named by US media as the missing tourist.

For the previous ten years, California has travelled to Amorgos “almost every year,” according to Deputy Mayor of Tourism Popi Despotidi, who spoke with CNN on Wednesday.
