LATEST ARTICLE TO APPEAR IN PRESS (DAILY MAIL 27.12.11)
This article quotes me as saying 'because of the myths'. This is a misquote - I didn't say it. It also states that we hope he is alive - I do not believe that he is. It also says it was the fourth time he visited the region - I don't know where they got that from - he was there more often than that.

That said, this is not over. TV people have been in touch and appear to be keen to make a documentary. They have spoken about the possibility of a trip to Turkey to film us looking for clues.
Any search of the mountain would obviously be nothing more than a search for what remains of him - if anything at all.
No, this would be an investigation to find out what happened to him.
My life is up in the air just now and will take time to settle, so I cannot say when anything will be done.
Time will tell.
