The body of missing British TV presenter Michael Mosley was discovered on a Greek island Sunday morning, ending a days-long search, his family confirmed.

A police spokesman, who requested anonymity due to the ongoing investigation, stated that the body was located on a rocky coast by a private boat.

Formal identification is still pending.

Mosley’s wife, Dr. Clare Bailey Mosley, shared in a heartfelt statement that her husband had taken the wrong route on a hike and collapsed in a location where his body was not easily visible.

Michael Mosley went missing on the island of Symi on Wednesday afternoon.

Michael was an adventurous man; it is part of what made him so special,” Dr. Clare Bailey Mosley expressed. “It is devastating to have lost Michael, my wonderful, funny, kind, and brilliant husband. We had a fortunate life together. We loved each other very much and were so happy together.”

She extended her gratitude to the residents of Symi, who she said worked tirelessly in the search efforts.

“Some of these people on the island, who had not even heard of Michael, worked from dawn till dusk unasked,” she noted.

“My family and I have been hugely comforted by the outpouring of love from people worldwide. Clearly, Michael meant a huge amount to so many of you.”

Lefteris Papakalodoukas, the island’s mayor, informed The Associated Press that he was on the boat with media representatives when they saw a body approximately 20 meters above the Agia Marina beach.

“We zoomed with the cameras and saw it was him,” he said.

According to the mayor, Mosley seemed to have fallen a steep, rocky slope, eventually stopping against a fence and lying face-up with a few rocks on top of him.

During the retrieval of Mosley’s body, a police officer fell on the slope and had to be carried away on a stretcher, as reported by local media.

The body is to be taken to the nearby island of Rhodes for autopsy.

Michael Mosley, 67, was a well-known figure in Britain for his regular appearances on television and radio and his column in the Daily Mail newspaper.

Internationally, he gained fame for his 2013 book The Fast Diet, which he co-authored with journalist Mimi Spencer.

The book introduced the 5:2 diet, which suggested minimizing calorie intake twice a week while maintaining healthy eating habits on the other five days.

Mosley continued contributing to health and wellness by introducing a rapid weight loss program and producing several films on diet and exercise.

Notably, he often pushed his body to extreme lengths to observe the effects of his diets, even living with tapeworms in his guts for six weeks for the BBC documentary “Infested! Living With Parasites.”

His wife survives: Michael Mosley, Dr. Clare Bailey Mosley, a doctor, author, and health columnist, and their four children.

His adventurous spirit and significant contributions to health and wellness will be remembered by many worldwide.
