Simon Jones: Aberystwyth car procession to help search for missing man
Published: 6th May 2012 09:23:39
A procession of more than 40 rally cars will drive through Aberystwyth in a bid to help the search for a missing man.
They will drive the route which CCTV shows Simon Jones, 24, walked when he was last seen in the Ceredigion town at 01:34 BST on Monday, 9 April.
It starts from Park Avenue car park at 14:00 BST on Sunday and the vehicles will make their way to the seafront.
Mr Jones was last seen in St James Square and his driving licence was recently found on a beach in the town.
Drivers will distribute missing person leaflets at the seafront in a bid to boost the search for Mr Jones, who owns a business which specialises in making parts for rally vehicles.
His father, Gwynfor Jones, from Llandysul, has described his disappearance as completely out of character.
Simon Jones's cousin, Jason Jones said: "Rallying is a fundamental part of Simon's life and it's his hobby.
The feeling among family is that we can't accept he's gone down a road and no one has seen him”
"The feeling among family is that we can't accept he's gone down a road and no one has seen him.
"He can't have just disappeared off the face of the earth at a time when the pubs and clubs are closing.
"He had no reason to disappear, he's successful and it's totally out of character.
"We are very concerned about his welfare and urge anyone with information to come forward."
A website has been created to aid the search for Mr Jones, but Dyfed-Powys Police say there have been no fresh leads since his driving licence was found two weeks ago.
Mr Jones was supposed to stay with friends in Penparcau but failed to arrive after his night out.
He is described as slim, 5ft 9in (1.7m), with dark medium length hair and attended the Pier Pressure nightclub and Lip Licking takeaway nearby.
Dyfed-Powys Police have asked anyone with information to contact them or call 101.
