The search operation after the disappearing of two men, aged 35 and 40 years, is still going on. They went missing in the region of Etoliko in the early morning of Friday. Police, firefighters and volunteers from the rescue teams of the Aetolia-Acarnania region are taking part in the search.


The reports say that Yannis and Vasilis, the former a worker, and the latter a stock farmer, went out to celebrate the New Year shortly after midnight, and have been lost track of ever since, as Vassilis's mother Anna told Proto thema. According to her account, the two men left Pentalofos village at 4:30 a.m. On Friday, and were last filmed by cameras at 5 a.m. in the village of Lessini.

"It was already daytime when I saw that Vassilis hadn't returned and I started worrying. I started calling friends and family, but no one knew anything. I don't know what might have happened, they are both good boys, never got into any trouble, I can tell you that. I hope they will be found, we are freaking out," the panicked mother said.


Police officers from Patras and firefighters from Messolonghi have already combed the Aheloos river and some neighbouring areas, but have found nothing so far. Police are trying to figure out exactly where the men went after midnight on Friday, as well as to find witnesses who saw them before their vanishing.

The two men were driving a black Toyota Corolla, number plate ΑΙΚ N885.

The roads, which the two men might have travelled, are being searched too.
