Highly skilled search officers from Dyfed-Powys and South Wales Police forces are continuing the search for 19-year-old James Corfield in Builth Wells.
A secondary search is being conducted at The Royal Welsh Show showground and the Young People’s Village now that the show has concluded and there are less people and vehicles around. The search along the river is continuing with the use of Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service’s drone.
Volunteers have been advised not to attend at the search site today due to the specialist nature of the search and for their own safety.
Superintendent Jon Cummins said: “While we fully understand the concern from the community and the desire to assist in the search for James, it is vitally important at this stage that we have only specially trained officers and our partners out there looking for him. Staying away is the best possible assistance the public can give us today and of course reporting any new information they may have to us by calling 101 immediately. Thank you for your support in sharing our appeals so far.”
James was last seen at the White Horse public house, Builth Wells, at around midnight on Monday 24 July 2017.
He is described as being 6ft 2 inches tall, of slim build, with short brown hair. He was last seen wearing a blue Abercrombie and Fitch shirt and jeans.
James was reported missing shortly before 2pm on Tuesday, 25 July 2017, after failing to meet his family at the Royal Welsh Show, where he had been camping with friends.
