Police divers, helicopter continue search for missing man

Demetris Antoniou

Police divers and a helicopter on Thursday morning resumed the search for Demetris Antoniou, 28, in the Akamas and Polis Chrysochous area on Thursday morning.

The helicopter will conduct low-altitude flights over the Akamas coast, while members of the civil defence, professional divers, friends and relatives of Antoniou, volunteers and police dogs continue the search elsewhere.

Antoniou has been missing since March 15 and was last seen on March 26. His car was found in the village of Polis Chrysochous on March 24.

He had been in self-isolation at his holiday home in Lysos after returning from Bulgaria.

On March 25, search crews found some items of clothing believed to belong to Antoniou near the sea area of Kakoskali.

Police said the man was seen in the area of Kili on March 26, where a man reportedly saw Antoniou and spoke to him, but did not realise it was Antoniou at the time.

When he did, some three hours later, he called police. Officers went to the area but could not find the missing man.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact Paphos CID on 26-806021, the hotline 1460 or any police station.
