The body of the British tourist who went missing two days ago was found at 10:45 a.m. on Saturday. The woman’s body was found by rescuers in the area Pyrgos of Petrota in the prefecture of Rodopi in north-eastern Greece.
According to local media, the body was in “a terrible condition, perhaps she was attacked by wild animals.”
An autopsy is expected to shed light to the causes of her death.
The 64-year-old UK tourist had left the pansion in Maroneia per taxi to visit the archaeological site of Mesimvria. She had decided to return on foot.
At some point she had called her relatives in London and informed them that she was attacked by wild dogs.
A big Search and Rescue Operation was launched on Thursday night, efforts to find the woman continued with the assistance also of local volunteers.
