New Alert on Crete Over Missing British Woman



Greek authorities are puzzled over a second person reported to be missing on the island of Crete in the space of a week.

After the discovery of a body in a cave in Chania on Tuesday, believed to be that of American biologist Dr. Suzanne Eaton, authorities have issued a silver alert for Katherine Nowatt who has been missing since June 30th from the area of Lasithi, in eastern Crete.

37 year old Nowatt, an English national, was last seen in Sisi, a small Greek resort in the municipal unit of Vrachasi, in Lasithi, Crete.

Nowatt hasn’t given signs of life since her disappearance.

According to the silver alert that was issued, the 37 year old British woman, on the day of her disappearance was wearing a light beach dress, hat, flip flops, sunglasses, and a light-colored bag.

She is thin and has a height of 1.57, and blue eyes. The 37-year-old may have traveled to Santorini island.

The silver alert message was issued at the request of the British Subcommittee, while the woman’s life is believed to be in danger.

The following case arose at a time when the investigation over Eaton, who disappeared last week in Kolymbari, Chania, is still on-going.

A body of a woman that was found in a cave in Chania, Crete on Tuesday morning is likely to belong to Eaton, who has been missing since July 2nd, according to local media reports.
