After Mosley went missing on the Greek island of Symi, the four-day search for the 67 year old ended in tragedy after his body was found in a rocky area, according to police.

At the time of the tragic discovery, Mosley’s wife expressed her devastation over the loss of her husband in a statement issued on her behalf.

“It’s devastating to have lost Michael, my wonderful, funny, kind and brilliant husband. We had an incredibly lucky life together. We loved each other very much,” the statement read.

Following an initial post-mortem examination, it was confirmed that there were no injuries on his body, Greek police spokeswoman Konstantia Dimoglidou told the BBC.

His estimated time of death was around 4 pm local time on Wednesday, June 5th. Mosley had left his friends at Agios Nikolaos beach around 1:30 pm for a walk.

The position his body was found in also indicated that he likely died of natural causes, Dimoglidou said, adding that toxicology and histology reports will be carried out.
