The 54-years-old David Westwell is missing since 9 am this morning. The man is a resident of Gavalohori, a few km south of Almirida. He went to Almirida for a coffee and he hasn't been seen since. His wife called the authorities and asked their help to find her husband.

Rescue teams have been searching the area and they have found his car, empty and with the door open, inside a stream.

The authorities believe that the man tried to cross a stream with his car but he didn't make it. Today they managed to search an area of 6 km along the stream. The research will continue tomorrow.

It was reported tonight that the body of the man was found at 5:30 pm in the port of Alimirida. The port is 3 km from where his car was found the previous day.
The man had wounds all over his body, as well as on his head, from the rocks in the stream where he drowned. The body was taken to the hospital of Chania for the autopsy.
