Missing fisherman found dead

A 65-year-old fisherman missing since Thursday afternoon has been found dead, authorities say.

The man was found on a reef off the island of Samos shortly before 10 p.m.

The fisherman, a local, was declared missing a few hours later, when his boat was found adrift at sea, authorities said. Two coast guard vessels and a helicopter took part in the search operation.
