Special rescue teams consisting of firemen, climbers and divers have been dispatched in the search for a boy who went missing on Sunday during a hiking trip.

The boy was with his parents and a group of another four adults and two children when he went missing while hiking in the Vouraikos Gorge near the Diakofto-Kalavryta railway line in the northern Peloponnese. The parents told rescuers he fell off a small bridge and disappeared from sight.

There were conflicting reports regarding his age, with some media saying he’s 9 years old and others 7.

Rescue teams are eager to locate the boy before sundown as exposure could put him in serious jeopardy.
