Another fan shared: "Oh goodness . My heart hurts with this news. I so love listening to Michael Mosley he brings hope to those who gave up. I'm not a big praying person only in a very private tiny way . Praying for him to return safely to his family.", reports the Mirror.

Echoing these sentiments, another fan said: "Ugh!! Why Michael Mosley? A decent person trying to do good in the world, when there are so many horrendous assholes for whom going missing would make the world a better place."

In agreement, another social media user fervently hoped for his safety: "Praying for Dr Michael Mosley hope he's ok."

Michael's agent raised alarm bells this Thursday morning after the columnist failed to return from a walk he'd set off on at 1.30pm from Saint Nikolas Beach the day before.

A full-scale search on the Symi island, part of the Dodecanese Islands, has begun. According to a local Facebook group post, a rescue team from Athens is geared up for joining the search, bringing in drones to expand the operation.

Meanwhile, someone at the Foreign Office stepped up to say: "We are supporting the family of a British man who is missing in Greece and are in contact with the local authorities."

Michael is known for his appearances on the small screen but his TV credits also include a series of documentaries as he notably hosted the Channel 4 program Michael Mosley: Who Made Britain Fat? and took part in the BBC program Trust Me, I'm A Doctor.

Michael was also given an Emmy nod for The Human Face, a scientific documentary presented by John Cleese. He also gained recognition for promoting the 5:2 diet and the Fast 800 diet.

While he keeps his personal life under wraps, Michael is married to fellow doctor, author and health columnist Clare Bailey Mosley and the pair share four children.
