KALAMATA, Greece – . An American couple missing in southern Greece since January 23 was found dead in a ravine on Mt. Taygetos near Kalamata on Friday, several Greek media said.

Their car was located by a drone of the Greek police, and their bodies were found in the same vicinity in southern Peloponnese on Friday afternoon. Efforts by the Fire Brigade and its disaster rescue team EMAK focused on retrieving the bodies from the ravine before nightfall. Volunteers from Messinia also helped.
