A body has been found during the search for Michael Mosley, a doctor who appeared on shows such as This Morning.

Mosley had gone missing earlier this week on the Greek island of Symi as his wife had told police he hadn’t come home.

Police had earlier said that they’d narrowed down the search area for Mosley to a ‘very dangerous’ part of the island.

According to Sky News, Symi’s deputy mayor Ilias Chaskas a body has since been found by those searching for Mosley.

The body was found in a cave on the Greek island, and The Sun reports that it has not yet been identified.

Dr Clare Bailey, the 67-year-old’s wife, yesterday (8 June) issued a statement saying she had not given up hope of her husband being found.

She said: “It has been three days since Michael left the beach to go for a walk.

“The longest and most unbearable days for myself and my children.

“The search is ongoing and our family are so incredibly grateful to the people of Symi, the Greek authorities and the British Consulate who are working tirelessly to help find Michael. We will not lose hope.”

The TV doctor had been reported missing on Wednesday (5 June) by his wife at around 7:30pm local time when he hadn’t come home.

He had last been seen on that same day at around 1:30pm when he was on a beach with friends and he decided to walk home.

Six hours later and he had not made it to his destination, prompting the search.
