Dionissis Achtipis was lost on September 2013, at the age of 38 year old. He left his house in Kalamaki telling his mother he would travel to Oslo, Norway, and that he would stay at the house of a student girlfriend. Since then he has not given any signs of life.
Just when the details of the case were announced a viewer friend of “Tunnel” who lives in Norway, contacted the show and claimed that he had seen him in Oslo.
Directly the broadcast informed the Greek Orthodox Community in the Norwegian capital and despite the late hour, the President Kyriaki Papadopoulou-Samuelsen, conducted an initial investigation.
Unfortunately no one recognized Dionissis from his photos, his name is not in the Norwegian telephone directory or in the community catalogues.
Dionissis worked as a chartered accountant and was traveling on behalf of his company in Greece and abroad.
Shortly before disappearing from the face of the earth, he began facing health problems.
He left for a better future and got lost …
From the beach of Kalamaki, favorite spot and relaxation area of the missing, his mother Rena Stylianidou spoke to the camera of “Tunnel”.
She said her son particularly loved swimming and water polo sports in which he was distinguished. He used to play electric guitar and in his student years he had created with friends a musical group called «Zero» and gave concerts.
Dionisis Achtypis had studied economics, was very studious and loved history.
Everything was overturned on Thursday, September 12, 2013. On that day he had planned to travel to Oslo as he said to his mother, and therefore this morning left with a taxi for the airport.
It was the last time she saw him and heard him.
At first his mother did not worry because Dionysis for some time was saying that he wanted to leave the country to find a better economic future elsewhere. He believed Oslo would give him opportunities he wanted and told his mother that he will be host at the house of an 25 year old Greek girlfriend of his, named Alexandra, who was studying and staying there.
His mother appealed to her son or to anyone who knows anything about his fate to contact “Tunnel”.
“If Dionysis watch the show, I want him to understand that I am not looking for him any other reason, but only out of concern and love,” she said.
The police found that he did not travel abroad
When the mother of the missing first went to the local police department to declare the disappearance of her son, policemen told her that they cannot help because he was an adult.
She insisted, showed them his documents that were at their house and the second time he was recorded as missing. Submitted to police an old passport of Dionysis which had expired in 2012, his identity card and other documents.
The police once crossed data, found it had not been issued a new passport and it was impossible to have traveled abroad with his old identity card.
“Obviously he is in Greece. Now all scenarios are possible “said his mother.
Although parents of Dionysis had divorced when he was one and a half year old, maintained good relationships with his father. He was particularly sociable had many friends and he was lovable.
“I do not want to disturb him or intrude to his life. Even a phone call, an indication that Dionisis is alive and well is enough for me, “she said.
