Hopes of finding Martin, missing at sea 13 days ago, are fading

Swim shorts washed ashore in Katerini that may have belonged to 32-year-old Martin, who went missing 13 days ago in Chalkidiki.

Hopes of finding a missing man from North Macedonia are fading every day. The search continues for the 13th day, rescuers and volunteers say they will not stop until they find him. According to GRTimes, search engines have shown interest in swim shorts found in seaweed in the Katerini area.

“This morning they sent us a photo, but the person who saw the shorts did not take them. Therefore, we can neither show them to the family of the missing person, nor establish involvement in the case. However, when the parents were shown the picture, they told us that they thought it looked like Martin’s shorts,” said ΟΦΚΑΘ President Anastasios Ramos.

He also mentioned that the investigation is now being moved to the Katerini area and in particular to “Makrigialo, Alykes Kitrus and Pydna”, noting: “At the moment we have mobilized all the funds that were used in the previous days.”

Martin, along with Ivan and another friend of his, went to rest in Halkidiki – one of the young people had a birthday, which they decided to celebrate on the beach and swim. After a swim on the beach “Miti” they were carried away by the waves to the open sea, as the weather deteriorated sharply, the wind rose and big waves.

A 25-year-old man was found and rescued a few hours later, 30-year-old Ivan the next day, and 32-year-old Martin has not yet been found. As they wrote “Athenian News”, a very strange story happened to the guys, citizens of North Macedonia. The story of the ball that saved the life of Ivan, who fought the waves off the coast of Kassandra (Chalkidiki) for 18 hours, is simply amazing. According to voria.gr, Ivan, holding the ball in his hands, managed to stay on the surface of the water in order to be able to rest and cope with the exhausting many hours of swimming, writes iefimerida.gr.

The incredible story behind the ball that miraculously caught the eye of Ivan, who was carried away by the current from the beach of Halkidiki, is that a child’s toy disappeared from Evgati beach on Lemnos on June 31! Two small children, 6-year-old Thanos and 11-year-old Tryfonas from Thessaloniki, while on vacation, went to the beach with their parents. There they played with their favorite ball, until at some point it fell into the sea and was carried away by the sea current. A swimmer who happened to be nearby at that moment tried to catch him, but to no avail. In general, the children put up with the loss of the ball and safely forgot about it.

And after 10 days, the mother of the children saw a news release about the guys who were carried away by the current to the open sea, and one escaped thanks to a ball found in the sea, and was surprised to recognize a children’s toy that she herself bought for children!

The woman saw the photo and realized that this is the same ball that her children lost on Lemnos! No one could have thought that a children’s toy would become a “lifeline” for a foreigner who has been on the high seas for 18 hours.

A rubber ball the size of a handball, although it was half deflated, however, according to Ivan, helped him stay alive. The ball lost on Lemnos became a “birthday present”. After all, who knows if the guy would have been able to stay on the water for such a long time!

Ivan, who dived into the sea after two of his friends as soon as he landed, said that “rescue was the best present for his birthday.” Recall that the guys went swimming in a dangerous place after the birthday celebration. The weather was fine and they decided to swim. However, at some point the wind and high waves picked up. Bathers were quickly swept away from the shore. The first of the three friends was quickly located, and the second, Ivan, was found with a ball in his hands after 18 hours.

Now the focus is on the search for Martin, the third of a group of citizens from North Macedonia who arrived on holiday in Greece.
