An AN investigation is underway when a human skeleton was found in the mountains of Rhodes nearly two years after a British expat went missing.
The grim discovery was made by a hunter in a hard-to-reach mountainous region of the Greek island, between Psinthos, Maritsa and Kalythi.
Authorities and Fire Brigade were called to the area on Saturday Proto Thema reported.
The remains were transferred to the Rhodes Hospital morgue for an autopsy.
The Prosecutor’s Office has also been notified.
Police are currently looking into the possibility that the skeleton belongs to a 60-year-old British woman living in Kalithies as her height, hair color and clothing match her description.
However, further testing is required to confirm the identity.
The 60 year old Brit has disappeared from the Greek island in December 2019.
At the time, authorities issued a silver warning after she failed to pick up food from Rhodes City.
