Body of missing man found off Marmara Island
Families of the missing men are waiting in front of Istanbul Forensic Medicine Institute.A body that was found on Aug. 23 off Marmara Island belongs to one of the five men who recently went missing in the Marmara Sea, a DNA test has revealed.
Şükrü Kahraman, 28, Mikayıl Çelik, 30, Yusuf Büyükizgi, 29, Serdar Demir, 25, and Doğan Demir, 21, were sailing on sea bicycles along the shores of the Kumburgaz neighborhood in Istanbul before they went missing on Aug. 17.
The discovered body, which belongs to Serdar Demir, was found on the shore of the island’s Gündoğdu village, around 100 kilometers away from Kumburgaz.
Search operations are continuing to find the other men.
A row erupted last week over the missing men after reports suggested that passengers travelling on a ferry sailing to Istanbul saw the men floating alone in the sea but the captain failed to rescue them.
