A family who are desperately seeking information to help locate a man missing on a Greek island have thanked people for their support and kindness.
Russell Ward, 76, from Stokesley, has been missing on the Island of Tilos, near Rhodes, since Thursday 14 June 2012. It is believed he headed along the coast of Gera - south of the main port of Livadia. It is possible he may have then headed inland to complete a circular route back to Livadia.
Search and rescue efforts have so far been unsuccessful and local police are conducting a missing person investigation. The inquiry is being supported by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
Anyone who can help the appeal is urged to contact the North Yorkshire Police control room on 01904 618691.
Joe Arthur from Sunderland died in hospital after he was attacked in Corfu. Doctors there said he'd suffered a heart attack but post mortem examinations here revealed he died of a brain haemorrhage. Now the trial of three people accused over his death has been held.
The family of a Sunderland man who was killed on holiday in Greece have branded the country's legal system as 'a joke'.
Joe Arthur was attacked in a bar on the island of Corfu in September 2006 and later died in hospital.
Three men, including a barman and two doctors, were arrested and charged in connection with his death.
The barman is accused of the attack, whilst the Greek medics who treated Joe in hospital are charged with neglect leading to manslaughter after postmortem's revealed the 34-year-old died of a brain haemorrhage, and not a heart attack as they had determined.
The three men were due to go on trial on Monday but the case was adjourned for a third time. It was previously delayed in April 2010 and January 2011.
Joe's family said the delay is another setback. His sister, Tracy Page said: "The family are now hanging about here absolutely bewildered in shock."
"It can't get any worse, and it just does. The Greek justice system is an absolute joke."
