Missing British astrophysicist found dead on Greek island

The body of a missing British astrophysicist, Natalie Christopher, was found on Greece’s Ikaria island on Wednesday.

Greek police had expanded their search operations to locate the 35 year-old woman, who was spending her vacations in the Aegean island, with her partner.

The victim was spotted in a ravine 20 meters deep, in a rough mountainous area outside Agios Kirikos, the main Port of Ikaria, where authorities and volunteers had focused their research.

Police launched the search on Monday after the woman’s disappearance was reported to the island’s Police Department by her partner.
