The mayor of the small Greek island where Dr Michael Mosley was last seen has shared 'concerns' that it is 'impossible' for him to still be on the island. Symi Mayor Eleftherios Papakalodoukas told the BBC : “It is a very small, controlled area, full of people.

"So, if something happened to him there, we would have found him by now.” Searches are continuing for the missing This Morning star on the island, which is 65 square kilometers.

Night vision drones have now been drafted in to continue the search for the This Morning star. Greek news outlets report the 'Icarus' drones have "the ability to fly at night and a thermal detection camera".

Dr Mosley was last seen at 1.30pm yesterday. Michael had just left the Ag. Nikolas beach on the picturesque Greek island of Symi and had reportedly set off along a coastal path to the town of Pedi.

His wife Dr Clare Bailey reported him missing hours later when he hadn't returned home. It has been reported that the TV star left his phone on the beach.

Concerns were growing as locals told how the 'easy trail' usually took just 20 minutes to navigate. Mayor Papakalodoukas earlier experiessed concerns that Dr Mosley's trail would have been dangerous as temperatures were hitting 35C yesterday.

If he hadn't been carrying water, the risk would have been even greater and he may have passed out due to dehydration.
