Some reports claim that he may have returned home.
The girl and her mother, 55, are understood to have reported to a hospital, where medical professionals called the police who, according toDimokratiki , also inspected the girl with the assistance of doctors.
The suspect is reported to have been identified using a combination of both witness statements and social media.
The girl is understood to have recognised the boy police are looking for when officers showed her a photograph of him, according to local media.
It is understood that on August 23, the 16-year-old left the island via ferry to Kamiros Skala at around 8:30am the same morning and from here travelled to Italy from Rhodes Airport.
A preliminary investigation is being carried out by AS Halkis, and the local prosecutor's office has been informed while the first stages of a preliminary investigation are carried out.
This isn’t the first incident of Brits claiming to have been sexually attacked while on holiday in Europe this summer.
