New CCTV shows TV presenter near where body was found

CCTV footage appears to show TV presenter Dr Michael Mosley disappearing from view as he walks down a hillside near where his body was found, the BBC has been told.

An autopsy will be carried out on Monday after Dr Mosley’s body was found four days after he went missing on the Greek island of Symi.

It is understood the coroner was unable to determine from the outset whether Dr Mosley had fallen due to the condition of the body.

The coroner, who arrived on the neighboring island of Rhodes where the autopsy will be performed, is believed to have ruled out the possibility of foul play.

Dr Mosley’s body was found on a hillside near the Agia Marina beach bar on Sunday.

Footage taken nearby, which the BBC was told about but not seen, is said to show what appears to be Dr Mosley’s final moments, as he walks down a slope before disappearing behind a wall.

The 67-year-old father of four disappeared on Wednesday after going for a walk from Agios Nikolaos beach.

His wife, Dr Clare Bailey Mosley, paid tribute to her “wonderful, funny, kind and brilliant” husband following the “devastating” news of his body being found.

Dr Bailey Mosley said: “We had an incredibly fortunate life together.

“We loved each other very much and were very happy together.”

CCTV footage showed Dr Mosley had walked to the other side of the bay in intense heat and across rocky terrain.

“We take comfort in the fact that he almost made it,” his wife said in her statement.

“He made an incredible climb, took the wrong route and collapsed where the extensive search team could not easily see him.”

Dr Mosley studied medicine in London and qualified as a doctor, and over the past two decades he has worked as a presenter, documentary filmmaker, journalist and author.

He was known for his television shows including Trust Me, I’m a Doctor and BBC Radio 4’s Just One Thing podcast. He also wrote a column for the Daily Mail.

Mosley had been an advocate of intermittent fasting diets, including through the 5:2 diet and The Fast 800 diet.

Dr Saleyha Ahsan, who co-presented Trust Me, I’m a Doctor with Dr Mosley, told the BBC’s Breakfast show that she was initially “terrified” to take on the role, but that he “put me at ease almost immediately.” “.

He added: “That really personable, approachable character on TV, that’s exactly what he was like in real life.

“He did incredible things for medicine and public health in a way that I think few have done.”
