The show’s camera was found on the ship from where he was lost for a reenact with the only witness who recorded his latest moves, but did not stop there …
It has penetrated to the heart of the Coast Guard Research and Rescue Coordination Center. Requested and received data from the National Meteorological Service for the weather conditions prevailing on that day.
The two key points in the disappearance of Takis were the moment when his cell phone was deactivated outside Tinos island about half past two and at five o’clock at dawn, when he was recorded by a camera inside the ship and recognized by the relatives. At that time the ship was in the sea area outside Saronida.

He explained that in the event of person falling into the sea with the specific weather conditions at that time, his body would be ended on the coast of Chios or on the shores of Saronida.
Did he take a taxi from the port?
One of the testimonies that bring Takis to life arrived at Tunnel by a taxi driver.
The witness allegedly received a young passenger on the morning of June 28 from the port of Piraeus. He asked him to take him to the bus station of Liosia, as he told him he wanted to go to Chalkida. On his way, he told him that he was called Takis, that he had just been deferred by the army because of family problems and was waiting for a phone call from his friends to give him money because he did not have any.
The driver told Angeliki Nikolouli that the young man wore a dark-colored blouse, green dark sports shoes, had a height of about 1.80 and had a small bag on his shoulder.
He also said that at the beginning of October he saw him again at a cafeteria in Daphni area and the young man woffered him coffee.
Immediately after the call center of the show, received many calls from viewers who gave information about shops and workers in the area described by the taxi driver.
“Tunnel” on the ship with the main witness …
Taki’ s friend , who was the last person to see him alive, spoke to the Tunnel on the ship he was lost.
He did not want to saw his face on the camera. He reported that with the missing person they met at the camp about a month before the disappearance and began to hang out. He argued that Takis did not seem to be in trouble with any other soldier. On the fatal day they returned from Chios to Piraeus after they had been deferred by the Army.
They left at the afternoon from the camp to go to the harbor, ate in a restaurant, met separately some well-known soldiers and entered the ship for the return journey. Takis looked relieved that he had been released and talked to his mother on the phone.
According to the missing person’s traveling companion, the two young men entered the ship around eleven in the evening. They laid their sleeping bags in one of the inner lounges of the ship next to a piano and went to the deck to smoke.
The witness revives on board the night of mystery …
Tunnel recorded with the camera the small route from the ship’s lounge to the deck. As Takis’s friend said to the show, they sat down for a while on a coffee table. After half an hour the friend told Takis that he would go to sleep and he replied that he would follow him later. All this time Takis spoke through text messages with his girlfriend. At that time there were many passengers on the deck, but also in the ship’s lounge.
The ship around seven o’clock in the morning had already been tied to the port of Piraeus when one of the crew went and awakened the friend of the missing soldier.
Then he saw that Takis was not next to him. He called him to his two mobile phones but they were deactivated. At first he thought he left and forgot his stuff. His bag was open and there was a bottle of water next to it. The sleeping bag was intact as if he had not been lying down.
He took his personal items and searched him on the deck, even on the toilet, but in vain. He came out of the ship and waited for him to look. When the last passenger descended, he informed the crew about the loss of his friend.
“They brought me up again on the ship, we searched without result and alerted the Coast Guard. I also followed them to testify. Later I saw the material of a camera that recorded him in the living room at about five and a half in the morning and I recognized him. I think he had told his girlfriend that he was afraid that someone had “set him up” and told me some strange things, “he said on the show.
Two days before the disappearance, the two young men had traveled from Chios to Piraeus in order to be tested at the military hospital. They returned to the island, took the postponement and re-entered the ship, heading for Piraeus.
“No camera recorded him leaving the boat. Personally I believe or that he left alone, or that someone did something to him. I do not think he would hurt himself. He had plans, he planned to cohabit with his girl. So many eyes were on the ship, someone would see something. Someone cannot disappear like that, “he said.
Friend: He did not tell me what happened at the military camp…
The close friend of the missing soldier Valantis Rodis spoke to the show’s camera.
He mentioned that the two young people grew up as brothers and in the last year and a half he had been hosting him at his house.
“He changed when he went to the army. I believe that there is the secret of his disappearance, “he said.
Takis had told him that during the month and a half he had been in the camp, he was in trouble with a officer. But he did not tell details. All he had told him was that he would explain to him what had happened, when he would arrive at Piraeus.
Another close friend of Takis, spoke to “Tunnel”. She described him as a difficult character who did not easily trust people and did not share what he had in his mind. On the contrary, he hid everything behind a bright smile. As she said, life itself forced him to mature quickly and began working from the tender age of 14 years. He lacked family warmth and often looked for it to the families of his friends. He recently made friends with some people who were negatively affected him. His girlfriend thinks he’s very likely to be hiding somewhere.
A camera inside the ship recorded its last trace around five and a half in the morning, just before the ferry bounded in Piraeus. He was among the passengers and seemed nervous.
His friend, called by the Authorities to see the material from the cameras, stressed to “Tunnel”
“He looked terrified. I cannot know what happened. He was alone and he certainly was afraid of something. If for some reason he decided to leave, I certainly feel he would at least communicate with his mother. ”
According to his girlfriend Takis faced the difficulties he was encountering, perhaps he was trying to avoid them, but he would certainly not hurt himself.
“I think he had a good reason to decide to postpone his military service. I know well that he wanted to end with his military obligations because he wanted to leave Greece, “she said.
Father: CCTV shows him to return inside…
Konstantinos Koliadelis spoke to Tunnel’ s camera from the deck of the ship where his son was before he disappeared mysteriously.
Obviously after four months of research and anxiety, he said that no matter where they searched, the two mobile phones and the wallet with the bank cards of the 23-year-old were not found. The only objects that were spotted were a bag with his clothes and his sleeping bag.
The removal of telephone privacy revealed that his latest signal was broadcast outside Tinos island , where research began in order to locate him.
“Our Port Authority ruled out the possibility of falling into the sea because after his cellphone deactivated at about half past five in the morning, a camera recorded him entering from the deck in the ship’s lounge. It was June, there were about eight hundred passengers in the ship, it is impossible that no one saw him. Even if there was an incident on the deck, would not there be a witness? ”
The CCTV of the ship’s garages were also examined by the Authorities, but Takis was not found anywhere.
As the father said, Takis had spent difficult childhood years. The separation of his parents had heart him, but lately father and son had come closer.
“He was coming to see his girl in Athens from Halkida who was staying and used to visit me as well. He is a good and positive young man. There are only scenarios. That’s why I appeal to anyone who saw him to help, to talk to find the edge of the yarn … “.
The “Tunnel” at the Coast Guard’s headquarters for the missing soldier …
Tunnel, on the occasion of the mysterious disappearance of Takis Koliadelis, was found at the heart of the Coast Guard’s search and rescue center.
In the place where everyday specially trained officers are struggling to save lives.
Captain Panagiotis Stournaras, supervisor of the Center, spoke on the show’s camera for this important project. As he explained, the center also cooperates with other competent agencies and services for the sole purpose of rescuing anyone who finds himself in the sea and is at risk.
It is extremely important for the Center to be informed of such a development in order to co-ordinate immediately all to be involved in conducting investigations to identify a missing person.
Given that for Koliadelis case the center was informed a long time after the disappearance, a specific protocol was implemented to cover the lost time and to examine each possible scenario.
“The parameters we put on the table to identify a man being searched for are many. For example, we identify the other ships that are currently close to the key points, the patrol boats of the Port, but also other carriers. Coordination of all is done by the Center, “he said.
The huge digital map of the Greek seas of the Center observes the movement of all those involved in a research, detection and rescue.
In many cases the missing person’s mobile phone’s emitting signal is of particular importance for surveys, as well as the currents in a region.
