He was reportedly last seen on Tuesday at a local cafe in the company of two women who have since left the small island.

Last Friday, news broke of the disappearance of an unidentified man in Mathraki. The man was reportedly last seen on Tuesday and was staying with his Greek-American friend.

The friend reported the man missing Thursday after he returned home to find the door open, the light on and the air conditioning running. But the man, along with his identification and his travel documents, were gone.

It has not been confirmed whether that man is the same individual whose body was found on Sunday.

The confirmed death of the American tourist is the latest in a series of disappearances of tourists from the Greek islands.

Several remain missing, but two others have been found dead after going on walks or walks in the scorching heat.

A 74-year-old Dutch tourist was found yesterday by a fire department drone lying face down in a ravine about 300 meters from the place where he was last seen a week ago.

Witnesses say he was struggling a bit as he walked under the scorching sun.

Also last week, Dr Michael Mosley, beloved British TV presenter and MailOnline.com columnist, was found dead on the island of Symi after collapsing during a walk.

His wife said he took the wrong route and collapsed just before reaching a marina, in a place where his body could not easily be seen.

The victim joins a series of tourists who have recently disappeared and/or have been found dead on the Greek island in recent weeks.

Last Friday, two French tourists were also reported missing on Sikinos, a somewhat isolated Cyclades island in the Aegean Sea that is home to fewer than 400 people.

The women, one in her sixties and the other in her seventies, left their respective hotels to meet and have not been seen since.

Also in the Cyclades, on the island of Amorgos, a search mission is underway for a 59-year-old American tourist, missing since last Tuesday.

The man, retired Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Albert Calibet of Hermosa Beach, set out on a solo hike in very hot conditions.
