    Good advice from Minanga, that's what I suggest as well. Turkey is closer to Ios, and you can get there by ferry from Naxos via Samos and Kusadasi. From Kusadasi take a bus to Izmir or Istanbul and connect to a flight out.

    I'm sure that there is a Schengen exit control in the Greek ferry harbour who will catch him. I agree with the advice to get documentation of the medical problems that caused his overstay.
