Focus shifts to mountain in search for Michael Mosley as temperatures expected to peak at 31 degrees in Symi

The search for TV presenter Michael Mosley has shifted focus to a mountain path after reviewing CCTV footage. Mosley, who disappeared on Wednesday (June 5) while on holiday in Greece, is understood to have started walking the path at 2pm that day.

Police, firefighters, a drone, a helicopter and volunteers have all been deployed to search for the 67-year-old presenter since his disappearance. The weather in Symi where Mr Mosley went missing is due to reach 31 degrees Celsius at noon.

Speaking to The Telegraph, one of the rescuers said: "The path is not easy to follow, if he took a wrong turn, he would be lost. He could be anywhere; it is a race against time.”

Mosley is well known for his work on TV shows such as Trust Me, I'm a Doctor and ITV's This Morning.

The island’s mayor also told the Mirror that the water search had been called off in an effort to focus on the 2km of terrain between Pedi and Gialos.

The development comes just hours after new CCTV images appeared to show Mr Mosley walking in Pedi at 1:50pm - 20 minutes after he left the beach on Wednesday.

A man of his likeness can be seen shielding himself from the heat with an umbrella while wearing the same clothes shown in the last known photo of him.

The search continues.
