Sev­er­al recent inci­dents involv­ing miss­ing and deceased tourists on the Greek islands have cast a shad­ow over these pop­u­lar vaca­tion destinations. 

The lat­est involves an uniden­ti­fied Amer­i­can tourist whose remains were dis­cov­ered near Math­ra­ki Island’s old port. The cause of death remains unknown, with a coro­ner en route for a pre­lim­i­nary investigation.

This dis­cov­ery fol­lows the dis­ap­pear­ance of Albert Cal­i­bet, a 59-year-old retired Los Ange­les Coun­ty Sher­if­f’s deputy, while hik­ing on Amorgos. 

Search efforts con­tin­ue for Cal­i­bet, with his girl­friend express­ing her wor­ry. Math­ra­ki, lack­ing a ded­i­cat­ed police sta­tion or coast guard, relies on assis­tance from Cor­fu for the inves­ti­ga­tion. The body will like­ly be trans­ferred to Cor­fu for a full autopsy.

These inci­dents aren’t iso­lat­ed. A 74-year-old Dutch tourist died on Samos last week, and British TV per­son­al­i­ty Dr. Michael Mosley was found deceased on Symi ear­li­er this month. 

Author­i­ties sus­pect the scorch­ing Greek island heat might have played a role in some deaths, but inves­ti­ga­tions are ongoing.

As the probe into these trou­bling events con­tin­ues, unease grows among both island com­mu­ni­ties and tourists. Tourist safe­ty in these pic­turesque loca­tions has become a crit­i­cal issue demand­ing swift action from authorities.
