An appeal to trace a man who went missing from his home near Wrexham last year has been renewed by North Wales Police.

David Clwyd Davies from the Trefynant Park area of Acrefair, Wrexham, was 69 years old when he was last seen on the afternoon of Saturday 6th April 2013.

Police were alerted by a concerned neighbour after he failed to turn up for an appointment that day.

North Wales Police are now renewing their appeal to the public for their help with any information or sightings. Last year we reported on several unconfirmed reports that Mr Davies has been sighted outside North Wales namely in the North West of England.

Mr Davies is described as 5’ 11” tall, of heavy build with a thick beard. He usually wears jeans, a fleece top and woolly hat and is well known in the local community.

Wrexham Rural Area Inspector, Andy Jones said: “ Despite extensive enquiries and numerous media appeals, as well as a significant number of responses from the public, we remain concerned about Mr Davies’s disappearance and I would ask anyone who has seen him or knows of his whereabouts to get in touch.

“I would also ask Mr Davies himself to make contact with the police, if he able to do so, to confirm that he is safe and well.”

Last June a documentary on David Clwyd Davies was aired on S4C. The documentary was part of the channel’s season of programmes featuring rural life.

Anyone with any information should contact North Wales Police on 101 or alternatively Crimestoppers on 0800555111.
