Missing elderly man found dead

Police cordon off the area where the man was found

An elderly man who had gone missing from his home in Orounda village in the Nicosia district was found dead on Wednesday morning in a ditch just outside of the village.

Police had put out an announcement on December 10 that 79-year-old Gregoris Chrysanthou had been missing since the previous Thursday, December 5.

Chrysanthou was found in a ditch on the side of the road with scratches on his face but following examinations carried out at the scene, police have ruled out any foul play. It is believed may have fallen into the ditch and was unable to drag himself out and possibly died of exposure.

A post-mortem is due to be carried out on Thursday.
