PONTYPOOL RFC has joined the campaign to help find missing South Wales Argus employee Ben Caplan.
Pontypool RFC’s corporate director, Ben Jeffreys, said posters of Mr Caplan will be displayed in the ground’s ticket office and patrons entrance.
A full-page poster will be included in every programme for tomorrow’s SWALEC Championship fixture between Pontypool RFC and TATA Steel RFC at Pontypool Park.
There will also be a pre-game and half-time tannoy announcement. Mr Jeffreys said: “As we learned of Ben Caplan’s circumstances, we naturally wanted to assist in any way possible at our next home fixture. I would kindly urge all supporters attending Saturday’s game to pay particular attention to the poster featured in our match day programme and the posters that will be located in various areas of Pontypool Park.”
Mr Caplan, 30, who works in circulation at the South Wales Argus Newport office, was last seen on December 7 in Caerleon after a night out with friends.
His wife Danielle reported him missing the next day when he failed to return home.
Mr Caplan lives in Bond Street, Newport, with Mrs Caplan and six-month old son Jude and five-year-old step-son Evan.
Mr Jeffreys said: “Everybody at Pontypool RFC offers its thoughts to family and friends of Ben Caplan and we all hope for a positive outcome during this festive period.” Searches have taken place during the week, with local people joining together to search Caerleon and the banks of the River Usk in Crickhowell.
Mr Caplan is described as white, 5ft 9ins tall, of a slight build with shoulder-length straight brown hair. He has tattoos on both arms as well as his back and chest. He is originally from Glasgow and has a Scottish accent. Anyone with any information is asked to call Gwent police on 101 quoting log 295 08/12/13.
