Michael Mosley Missing, Explore All Details

Prominent BBC health expert Michael Mosley has gone missing while on holiday. The 67-year-old nutritional and healthy living guru was last seen going for a walk on the island of Symi, Greece, and has not returned since. He was reported missing after failing to return by 7:30 PM on Wednesday.

Search Underway

Dr. Mosley’s wife, Dr. Clare Bailey, 62, raised the alarm, prompting local authorities to begin tracing his route overnight. Despite their efforts, they were unable to locate him. A search and rescue team from Athens, equipped with drones and other sophisticated equipment, has been deployed to extend the search today (Thursday).

Public Appeal

Resident Adriana Shum took to the Friends of Symi Facebook page to appeal for information, writing, “Have you seen this man? He set off to walk back from St Nick’s at about 13.30 and failed to make it home. His friends are concerned as it is six hours since they last saw him. His name is Dr. Mike Mosley, and he is a familiar face for many British people as he has appeared on the BBC. Edit: The police and coast guard have been informed. E.D.O.K, the island’s rescue team, is also involved. Edit 9.30 Thursday morning: So far he still has not been found, and the search continues.”

Efforts Intensify

Other commenters noted that Dr. Mosley’s wife Clare and a friend had retraced his walk but found no clues. The Daily Mail reported that police in Athens are actively pursuing the case. Senior Police Spokesman Constantina Dimoglidou confirmed ongoing searches, which began early this morning. “He was at the beach of Ag. Nikolas with another couple when he decided to go back to his home in the area of Pedi of Symi. It was around 1.30 PM and he forgot his phone at the beach. Any and every attempt to track him down has not produced any result. We have now asked the fire brigade to assist in the operation in the case that he may have slipped, tripped, fallen, or even been bitten by a snake, remaining injured somewhere.”

No Trace Found

Dr. Mosley is widely known for his contributions to health and nutrition, particularly his Fast 800 and 5:2 eating plans. Despite exhaustive search efforts, there has been no trace of him. “There is just no trace of him. None whatsoever, and that means that for us at least, every potential scenario is open and being investigated,” said Dimoglidou.

Accomplished Career

He has written several international bestsellers, including “The Fast 800,” “The Clever Guts Diet,” “The Fast Diet,” “Fast Exercise,” “Just One Thing,” and “The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet.” He presents a regular radio show and podcast for the BBC called “Just One Thing” and resides in Buckinghamshire with his wife, Clare.

Personal Transformation

Michael Mosley’s journey into health and nutrition began with a personal health scare. Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, Mosley was also showing early signs of fatty liver disease. Through radical dietary changes, including the 5:2 diet, he managed to reverse both conditions. He lost 9kg and saw significant health improvements. “Eleven years ago, when I discovered that I had type 2 diabetes, I also had a scan that revealed I had early signs of fatty liver disease. Both the diabetes and the fatty liver went away once I went on the 5:2 diet and lost 9kg,” he shared.
