Anyone been following this? - http://www.itv.com/news/granada/2012-04-15/fears-grow-for-cheshire-marathon-runner-missing-in-greece/
I have, because I know the area well (we've owned a house in that area for the last seven years)and these are the some of the same tracks and paths that I go riding and walking on.
As far as I'm aware he's still classed as missing but I can't see how, with the considerable numbers of people that have been searching, nothing seems to have been found. Ok, it would be quite possible for anyone to be running in that type of terrain and fall, injuring themselves or, even worse, being killed but the Hellenic Mountain Rescue people have been up there for days with dogs and you'd think that they would have found something?
It's pretty inhospitable terrain in places but a lot of the people that have been searching know the area like the backs of their hands, every twist and turn in the trails and every hidden ravine.
It just seems strange and I have a few slightly off-the-wall theories but I accept that a public forum may not be the place to air these.
My wife never likes me going out riding alone in these sort of places because it can get pretty remote and, sods law, there's never any phone coverage when you'd most need it. She says she worries from the minute I leave home until she hears my bike coming down the lane behind our house.
