A 33-year-old man has been found dead in the Neda River in the Peloponnese’s Messinia region.

Two EMAK rescue teams and a sniffer dog were alerted after the man’s party lost contact with him and reported him missing.

His body was recovered from the river following an extensive search late Wednesday.
