THE SEARCH for 19-year-old James Corfield continues this morning (Jul 27) after the police have said they have been ‘overwhelmed’ by the amount of support given by the community.
James was last seen at midnight on Monday (Jul 24) at the Royal Welsh Show.
A police spokesperson said: “We have been overwhelmed by the support of the community, who have volunteered their time to help us search for missing James Corfield.”
Powys Commander, Supt. Jon Cummins, said: “On behalf of the whole Force I would like to thank everyone who has assisted in today’s search in Builth Wells.
“We are grateful to everyone for their help but as the search continues we would ask that members of the public refrain from attending the area so that specially trained police officers and rescue teams can continue to undertake their meticulous search as efficiently as possible.
“We would also like to thank those who have supported our appeal and ask that people continue to support us by sharing our posts.”
