Today, we would like to address you with a unique appeal related to the disappearance of Andrzej Weber, who is most likely still in Crete. According to the information provided by the family, on 13 April he did not show up on the plane taking a return flight on the route Chania - Krakow. In the whole situation, it is very worrying that the last contact that his relatives made with him took place on April 8. At present, his phone is switched off or is out of GSM network coverage.
Andrzej Weber arrived in Crete on 6 April and then, moving on KTEL buses, he went to the southern coast of the island. When he contacted his family for the last time, he was on the stretch of the E4 route between Sougia and Chora Sfakion. It is possible that between 9 and 10 April he boarded the ferry or another boat going to the island of Gavdos. However, this information is not confirmed.
Mr. Andrzej Weber is a slim 64-year-old man with a height of 1.94 m. He has short hair, gray hair and gray-green eyes. At the moment of disappearing, he was dressed in typically trekking clothes. He carried a tourist backpack and tent, as well as other equipment used for camping.
According to local media, his daughter contacted a police station in the Sfakia region. The Polish embassy in Heraklion was also informed about the disappearance. In the near future, my daughter, Andrzej, is to go to Crete to search for her father.
All people who have any information are asked to contact the family. This is possible via the e-mail address: [email protected] and by phone: +48 603 696 609. We, for our part, are kindly asking you to share this information with your friends living or staying in Crete.
UPGRADE : The latest reports published on flashnews.gr show that the search was started by two rescue teams. The first set off from Agia Roumeli, the second from Sougia. Rescuers will check this most difficult part of the E4 route. Going on both sides will shorten the search time, both teams will meet halfway.
