The young man, who in the last seven days was working in a volunteer programme at the national forest of Samaria, was found wedged between two boulders.
The youth was working with the rest of the team in Samaria Gorge but he did not return to the meeting point at the scheduled time.
An operation to locate the missing youth was immediately launched. Samaria Gorge workers, sniffer dogs and a rescue
team on foot together with police officers and Red Cross volunteers took part in the operation.
