An Austrian newly wed couple has been missing in the floods of Pilio, central Greece. they have been missing since Tuesday afternoon after the holiday accommodation they were staying in was swept away.
The pair, said to be from the city of Graz and aged in the mid 30’s, were staying in an accommodation in the seaside village of Potistika, along with another couple from Austria.
According to local news site Gegonota, the couple fled the accommodation to escape floodwaters from a nearby torrent. They climbed a nearby hill and have been missing ever since.
The other Austrians are reported to be safe.
“I can’t believe it. The young guys came from three weeks and as soon as they arrived, they got married in Argalasti. They have come here many times on holidays and are the same age, about 35 years old,” the owner of the accommodation said.
