A missing American tourist, last seen on Mathraki island, was found dead on Sunday. According to Corfu TV news, the deceased was a 55-year-old American.

This follows the discovery of a 74-year-old Dutch tourist’s body on the island of Samos on Saturday and the death of British TV anchor Dr. Michael Mosley on Symi a week prior.

These incidents occurred amidst an unprecedented heatwave affecting Greece and its islands.

Upon returning home, the American tourist had been reported missing on Thursday by his Greek-American friend, who found the door open and the air conditioning running. Still, the tourist and his identification were gone.

Investigators stated he was last seen at a tavern on Mathraki on Tuesday. His body was discovered on a beach near the old port around 1:30 p.m. local time on Sunday.

Another American tourist, Albert Caliber, has been missing for several days after setting out for a hike on Amorgos Island. The 59-year-old retired Los Angeles County police officer’s family and friends have traveled to Greece to assist in the search.


Two French women, aged 73 and 64, are also missing after meeting up at different hotels.

Greek officials attribute these tragedies to a severe early heatwave impacting the region. Many international tourists, unaccustomed to such extreme conditions, may have succumbed to heat-related issues.

The heatwave has forced the closure of popular sites like the Acropolis in Athens, where tourists have fainted while waiting in line.
