New CCTV images show missing Dr Michael Mosley walking towards rocky hills on Greek island, Symi.

In footage recorded on Wednesday, the missing TV doctor can be seen next to a marina in the village of Pedi. Search efforts resumed this morning after they were paused due to fading light yesterday evening, with helicopters, drones and dogs deployed.

Local police announced the 67-year-old had gone missing on Wednesday after he was last spotted leaving a beach by foot. Emergency responders have been using drones to scour the island of Symi, part of the Dodecanese island chain and around 25 miles north of Rhodes.

New CCTV footage from a Greek restaurant shows the doctor moments before he went missing, the Mirror reports. Grini Kaurmadia's family own the St Nikolas Beach restaurant and have said Dr Mosley used their bathroom at around 1pm on Wednesday.

The footage has been handed over to police who have already spoken to staff. The wife of the missing doctor has also spoken out for the first time. In a moving statement, the first released publicly since her husband went missing, Dr Clare Bailey 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".

Dr Mosley was last seen on CCTV by a grey-stoned house beside a harbour and it is believed he may have walked along a steep uphill concrete road. At the end of this, a small path leads to a rocky landscape which has little vegetation beyond thistles and dry grass.

One of the rescuers have described the efforts as "a race against time". His wife and four children have all joined in the search efforts to locate Dr Mosley, as well as island residents who have used their own boats to try and find the Brit.

On Friday, the mayor's daughter Mika Papakalodouka told the PA news agency: "It is a small island, people talk. We're good people actually here. Everybody is looking for him. It's such a small island to get lost on. It's so weird for us. Everybody is worried and looking for him."
