” People here are so good. Once they learned that Bob disappeared, they searched for him. I meet them at the supermarket, the butcher shop or the bakery and tell me how sorry they feel. It is very difficult that I have no answer. Because you never know… Although I pray for a happy ending, I’m quite realistic Knowing he has been missing for so many days without food, or water, maybe he had an accident. I do not know … “she said.
She said her husband left for a ride on Sunday morning on November 19th with their car a light blue Hundai Getz, with registration number ΕΜΖ 9231.

“The police are not actively looking for him. They consider him as a missing person, the case is still open. They spoke to hunters, but there was not any witness. He does not have his passport with him or money. I have checked our bank accounts and nothing is missing. I have no idea what might have happened to him. Maybe he could not drive the car. And he probably went out and walked. But from then on, I do not know. It’s strange that nothing has been found, “he said.
She said she is in frequent communication with her husband’s sister in the United States and appealed to anyone who knows something to help put an end to her anxiety.
