Dr Michael Mosley’s body was found earlier today after a ‘desperate’ five-day search came to an end. A tourist said that the body of the TV personality was “so close to shelter”

A distraught tourist revealed Dr Michael Mosley was “so close to shelter” as his body was discovered earlier this morning just yards from a resort.

The British TV personality, 67, went missing on Wednesday (June 5) after going on a walk while on holiday on the Greek island of Symi.

His body was said to have been missed by rescuers “20 times”. He suffered “bad luck” as he is said to have been metres away from a popular beach bar when he passed.

Now, tourist Sindy Seenarine, who has been going to the island for 14 years, said that the 40C temperatures are the “hottest it’s ever been.”

Speaking to the PA news agency, Sindy said: “The tragedy is he was so close to shelter, maybe he was desperately trying to get here?

“That’s the tragedy to me, is he’s so close to shelter. We’ve never experienced this heat in Symi in June.”

After he disappeared from his walk five days ago, a ‘desperate’ search ensued where dozens of police, helicopters, divers, dogs, and drones.

And now, the Sun reports that the popular telly doc was found with an umbrella, nearby to a dangerous water-filled cave complex described as ‘The Abyss’ by locals.

Although rescue teams in their droves ‘raced against time’ to locate Dr Michael Mosley, it was a camera crew filming from the sea who were first to spot his body.

Antonios, a local cameraman, told Sky that he noticed something on the beach near a fence so took two pictures with a long-lens camera.

He then took a picture of the photo on the camera screen using an iPhone, where he could “clearly” see a man lying down that fit the descriptions of Dr Mosley.

Tragically, he leaves behind wife Dr Clare Bailey – who he was on holiday with – and his four children who flew to Greece to join in with the search.

Michael Mosley became a household name thanks to his appearances on This Morning and the One Show, along with his various health pieces in newspapers.
