A hiker who went missing on Mount Dirfi during the rain- and thunderstorm that swept across Greece has been found. The 36-year-old man called the emergency service of the Fire Service on Wednesday night to say he had lost his way in the storm and was trying to make his way to the Dirfi refuge on the island of Evia.
Short after, his mobile was shut down. A Search and Rescue operation was launched.
