GWENT Police are continuing their appeal for information to help locate Jaymie James, who was reported missing in October last year.

He was reported missing at around 4.30pm on Sunday, October 15, 2017 and was last seen in the Pontypool area.

Apart from one sighting around 10 days after the day he went missing, the 49-year-old has not been seen since and the search has been widened to the UK and abroad.

Possible sightings of Mr James were reported in Monmouth and Neath, but these were ruled out.

Mr James has a condition for which he needs medication, and it is understood that he does not currently have access to it.

As a result, officers believe that he could pose a risk to himself or others.

He is described as white, around 6’2” tall, of a slim build with brown hair and a long brown beard, and often wears sandals and army green style shorts and jumper.

Anyone who sees him is advised not to approach him as he has been violent in the past and should call the police instead on 101 or 999 quoting log number 376 15/10/17.
