Goran is desperate because of his brother who disappeared at sea in Halkidiki: I can't go home without him
Goran came to Greece from his country with friends and volunteers in order to find his brother as soon as possible. His mother, wife and their ten-month-old baby are with him
I cannot return home without my brother, says Goran Jovanovski, whose brother Martin (31) disappeared at sea in Halkidiki 11 days ago.
Martin went in the water with two friends and they all got swept away by strong currents. One young man was rescued after a few hours, another was found alive after 20 hours, while there is still no sign of Martin.
The family of the man from North Macedonia arrived in Greece last week and since then they have been participating in the ongoing search for Martin.
Goran came to Greece from his country with friends and volunteers in order to find his brother as soon as possible. His mother, wife and their ten-month-old baby are with him.
"We have been actively searching for my brother for ten days and so far there are no results, nothing," Goran is desperate.
He stressed that the search for Martin has become very expensive and asked for help from the Greeks and the local government, at the same time thanking the volunteers who have been selflessly helping all this time.
"The search is becoming very expensive. We rent planes, underwater drones with thermal cameras, boats. It's all becoming financially unsustainable for my family. I want to thank the volunteers who came from North Macedonia, the Greek volunteer rescuers who have been with us all this time and all the people from all over the world who made donations. We couldn't do anything without them. We are also grateful to the Greek government, which has extended the investigation," said Goran.
He added that he and his family are "trapped" in a foreign country, whose language they do not speak.
"I can't go home without my brother. I can't tell my mother anything. How can I go home without my brother? So I am asking the Greek government to help us in any way, with planes, drones, helicopters... Civilians with their boats can also help in the search. Citizens who have drones can also help. We have a limited number of people, and a large area needs to be searched," said the brother of the missing man.
Volunteer rescuers say their underwater drone is involved in the search, and that they will do their best to find Martin.
"We will look for him as long as we can," said Mr. Ramos, on behalf of a volunteer association.
