METHONI, GREECE: An elderly American couple has been missing in Greece since January 2023, and their daughter fears they may have died by suicide. David Harrison Robinson and his wife, Lucretia Robinson, were last seen leaving their home in the southwest Peloponnese village of Methoni on January 23, 2023.
According to an official Silver Alert issued by Greek authorities, the couple left home in their electric blue Opel Aglia car "with a possible destination of Monemvasia in Laconia," and have not been seen or heard from since. Now, police in Greece are actively searching for the couple.

Where are David and Lucretia Robinson?
As of now, both David and Lucretia are still missing and they have not been seen or heard from by anybody. Although they have been missing since last month, they were officially reported missing by relatives earlier this week.
The 83-year-old man and his 80-year-old wife were living in the area of Dapia Methoni, in the municipality of Pylos Nestoros, Messinia, for the last few years. It is not clear how the Robinsons came to live in Greece. Photos from Lucretia's Facebook profile show the duo posing together in elaborate costumes.
Did the Robinsons kill themselves?
The couple’s daughter, Julianna Robinson, wrote in a February 5 Facebook post that her parents were "presumed dead of their own volition." She wrote in the post, "As of today, my parents are officially missing and are presumed dead of their own volition (details not available as they were very private people). They were in Greece when it happened; I don't know where they went to end their lives, so until their bodies are found I need the help of my community to stay functional."
"While I am waiting, I want NO SYMPATHIES OR CONDOLENCES! I NEED to hear good things from your lives, and lots and lots of pet photos. All the pet photos. A mental and emotional breakdown is being scheduled for after we have found them and gotten the massive amount of paperwork in two countries out of the way, but until then I have to stay focused," Julianna added.
Julianna, who is based in Seattle, declined to elaborate on the tragic situation as the details are too personal. The following day, she shared another post seeking recommendations for a probate lawyer. "The will is very simple and leaves everything to me, but with property in both WA and Greece I want to make sure I’m doing it correctly," she explained.
