Mosley, known for his work on BBC programs like "Trust Me, I'm a Doctor," vanished on Monday. He was last seen leaving his accommodation in the coastal town of Pedi. Security footage indicates he intended to hike to Agia Marina, a route considered difficult and dangerous.

"It's a difficult path, very dangerous," reported ERTnews correspondent Aristides Miaoulis. "However, according to information, Mosley had a map with the route marked."

Rescue teams, including firefighters, coast guard personnel, police, volunteers, and specially trained dogs, are meticulously combing the area. Drones are also being deployed to aid in the search.

Hopes were raised when a specially trained police dog reportedly detected a scent, but these leads have not yet yielded results.
