The plane is currently circling the Gresford area at 2000 feet , a different aircraft than the usual police helicopter.

Police say 36-yr-old Ricky Copnall last seen wearing a green top, deer stalker hat and is approximately 5ft 6″tall.

One eyewitness has said, “3 marked police cars and two unmarked and police plane flying around old Wrexham Road.”
