NICOSIA (Reuters) - The U.S. embassy in Cyprus issued a public appeal on Sunday for information on the whereabouts of a senior U.S. diplomat who has been missing for three days.
Thomas Mooney, 45, described on the Cyprus government Foreign Ministry Web site as a U.S. defence attache, was last seen leaving the embassy on Thursday afternoon.
His body was found some yards from his car which was parked on a dirt track, and a sharp implement was found in the area. He was believed to have been dead for a few days.
The U.S. military attache in Cyprus was found dead with his throat slit on Monday in a remote mountainous region of the Mediterranean island in what authorities are treating as a suicide.
The body of Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Mooney, 45, was found near his locked car north-west of the capital, Nicosia, four days after he went missing.
