Very sad, confusing reports over the last week, which have now been clarified by the article.

Yes SkiathosLover and I did wonder why it has taken so long to hit the main Greek press.

I'm sure there has been info posted on the actual island but thought it might alert people who log on to TA whilst there or have returned.

Tripadvisor is such a wonderful resource for getting info out there quickly and to so many people that I thought it was worth posting......albeit a little late.

Although not strictly travel related, I'm sure that TA won't mind....It is in a good cause and is worth a try.

Its been posted on the island news blogs and on the facebook pages. However some people were reporting all sorts of conclusions on FB - Which the article has made clear are not correct. Hope this sad situation is resolved soon for all concerned, after all this man is a traveler to the island, and we hope is returned safe and well soon ...

Dreadful indeed. I wonder whether he had money or cards with him so that he could have left the island. In a confused state, he might have even tried to get home.

I do hope they find him soon and that he hasn't come to any harm.

hello, My name is Eric Bamps, and the missing josé is my brother in law. the brother of my wife. She is as devastated as is his wife. Can you tell me something more about those 'confusing infos' that might have been going around ? This is verry important for us,

We still not notified josé's mother of his misterious dissaperaring,

and all possible info is vital for us. This waiting for some news, wathever it is, is slowly badly affecting us. If you have any info, rumours, or whatever it is I would be extremely thankfull.
