Dr Michael Mosley reported missing on Greek island of Symi

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."

It is understood that Dr Mosley was last seen by CCTV on a grey-stoned house beside a harbour on the island.

He may have walked along a steep uphill concrete road.

At the end of the street, a small path leads into the rocky landscape which has little vegetation beyond thistles and dry grass.
