The cameraman who made the grim discovery of a body during the search for This Morning's regular contributor Dr. Michael Mosley has been left in tears during an emotional interview, where he addressed the doctor's grieving family.

On Sunday, June 9, it was tragically confirmed that a body had been found as part of the search efforts for the beloved TV doctor. Dr. Mosley, known for his frequent appearances on programmes such as This Morning, went missing earlier in the week while hiking on a Greek island during a holiday with his wife, Clare.

The body was located in a rugged area near Agia Marina on the island of Symi, following an intensive search by emergency services. It is believed to have been there for some time.

In a heart-wrenching statement just hours before the discovery, Clare Mosley maintained: "We will not lose hope."

In a poignant moment on Sky News, Antonios, the local cameraman who stumbled upon the body this morning, was visibly distraught as he recounted how the deceased matched Dr. Michael Mosley's description. He described taking a photograph of the scene with an iPhone and upon zooming in, he could "clearly see" a man "lying down" with "his hand on his belly", reports the Mirror.

Visibly overcome with emotion, he said: "The description is exactly of the guy we were looking for."

Tears followed as he expressed his sorrow: "I'm really sorry for the family, I'm sorry that I'm the one to find him. I wish we had better news."

Social media users have expressed their condolences under a video interview shared by Sky about Dr. Michael Mosley's demise. One user commented: "This is a tragic and heartbreaking situation. Our thoughts are with the family and loved ones of Dr. Michael Mosley. We hope that they are able to find some comfort and peace during this difficult time."

Another user expressed: "This is just too sad. I really feel for his family and the people who found him."

Meanwhile, a third individual shared: "So very sad, seemingly so close to getting help and shelter too at Agia Marina. The dangers of the sun and heat. I have passed out many times. It's dangerous and happens quick without warning... thinking of Michael Morley's family. Was hoping for a positive outcome."
