Elias Drikos, 35, all his time was wandering in the surrounding area until he decided to return to his house and gave an end to his relatives’ anxiety.
For the father of two underage girls, they searched for a number of days, Police, Fire Department men and even his fellow villagers, all of whom expressed fears even for the worst.
The chronicle of the disappearance
The young farmer was lost on Sunday 24 September. That day started from his village in Filiates to go to the family’s stable in Sideris. At 8 in the morning he spoke on the phone with his father who was hunting nearby. They agreed on the afternoon shift in the stable and everything seemed to run smoothly. Two hours later he contacted his wife and told her:
“I’m ready to get into the car to come back.” He even had the intention of passing as he told her from a bakery to buy bread.
His relatives tried to call him on his phone but he was not responding. They were upset and informed his father, who was nearby, to see what was going on in the barn. When he reached the point, he found the car open with the keys on the starter and the two mobile phones of his son, as well as all his personal items. Elias was vanished.
Police officers believed that this was a voluntary disappearance. The scenery in his car was shown as all his personal items were left arranged in order.
After Police order there was a Silver Alert for his disappearance.
