Police said there did not appear to be foul play in the death of 59-year-old Georgios Kyriakides, found dead in a ravine three days after he went missing from his home in Paphos.

According to Paphos police spokesman and assistant chief Michalis Ioannou, nothing has emerged at this stage that suggests criminal activity.

An autopsy on Kyriakides’ body carried out Thursday at Paphos general hospital could not pin down the exact cause of death. Tissue samples were taken for further analysis.

Kyriakides was reported missing by his family around 8pm on Sunday after he did not return to his house in Ambelitis village.

Following a three-day search operation in Paphos, a police helicopter found his body at around 10.15am on Wednesday in a ravine in Yiolou.

It was spotted about 2km from his car which was found in the area of Drymou, Stroumpi and Yiolou two days prior.
