The search for TV doctor Michael Mosley has continued into its fourth day after the TV doctor went missing on the Greek island of Symi.

The 67-year-old has been missing since he went on a hike on Wednesday, June 6. He left around 1.30pm and his wife, Dr Clare Bailey, 62, raised the alarm when he didn't return by 7.30pm.

Mr Mosley was seen on CCTV near a grey-stoned house beside a harbour on the island. A second piece of CCTV footage from a nearby premises showed a man wearing the same clothes and carrying the same umbrella at 1.50pm in nearby village, Pedi.

Earlier today, the island's mayor has vowed to continue the search until Dr Mosley is found. He said that Dr Mosley's four children have now arrived on the island and are set to join the search for the missing TV doctor. In their efforts to locate Dr Mosley, firefighters have deployed a drone while they navigate through the intense heat up a mountainous region.

The hilltop, which lies between Pedi bay and Agia Marina and is suspected to be part of Dr Mosley's route, offers neither a path nor shade. A yellow weather alert is currently in force across the area for high temperatures.

Our sister site, Mirror Online, reports the official leading the search, Manolis Tsimpoukas, has said the operation has shifted its focus to a "very dangerous" area. Dr Mosley's wife is refusing to give up hope as she has been joined by her friends and family on the search.

She 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."
