Last words Brit hiker said to his wife before 'vanishing' on Greek island two years ago

Last words Brit hiker said to his wife before 'vanishing' on Greek island two years ago

He's been missing since June 2021

The wife of a British man who vanished while on holiday in Greece is still searching for answers more than two years on.

David Wolstenhulme, from Skipton, was on a walking holiday with his wife Heide and a group of others in June 2021 when he vanished without a trace on Greek island of Serifos

David, who was an experienced walk leader, decided to take a hike on his own while the rest of their group did something else.

Describing what he was wearing at the time of his disappearance, Heide recalled: "He'd got quite a broad-brimmed blue Tilley hat on, bright blue shorts and rucksack, proper walking boots and just a dark blue t-shirt, so he would have stood out.

There hasn't been a sign of David since June 2021.

"We just can't imagine what has happened to him, whether he has had an accident and he's rolled somewhere where he can't be seen, it's just unbelievable."

David’s lone walk was not an unusual thing for him to be doing, and he’d left with ‘just enough euros for the day’ and without his passport.

In an interview with ITV, Heide said that the morning of his disappearance was just like any other.

She shared: “He got up quite early, had his breakfast, and he just said, ‘ta-ra, see you later.’”

Despite a full-scale search, no trace of David has been found since.

Heartbroken Heide and David’s sister Carole Hulland are still desperate for answers - and have admitted to fearing the worst.

In an interview with The Sun, his wife said: "It's two years now since Dave disappeared and nobody can find anything at all.

"I’d love for him to be alive I just can't imagine that he is because he had nowhere to go.

"He wasn't going to be able to go anywhere really because there were still Covid restrictions and didn't have anything with him, not his passport.

"You don't imagine something like that is going to happen to you. It's like watching something on the TV.”

Even though there are no clues to what might have happened, there are a couple of theories.

Heide continued: “I know accidents happen or he may have had a heart attack.

"I just can't understand where he was going. I have this awful feeling that he's gone through the ground because there are some old mines in the area.

"I just wonder whether the ground has given way - it's an awful thought."

Heide is still appealing for anyone in the area to keep their eyes out for anything that might lead to information about David’s disappearance.
