30 EIGHT people arrested as part of the murder investigation surrounding a missing Newbridge man will answer bail next month.

People from various parts of the Valleys have been arrested on suspicion of a number of offences since Gwent Police started treating 24-year-old Kyle Vaughan’s disappearance as murder.

All eight have the same bail date of March 21, when they will be charged, re-bailed or face the possibility of no further action being taken against them.

Mr Vaughan, an insulindependant diabetic, has not been seen since December 30, the day his silver Peugeot 306 was found on the A467.

Officers have been searching the Valleys for clues, and residents of Cwrt y Babell, Cwmfelinfach, told the Argus the police helicopter has been out in the area and officers have been carrying out door-to-door inquiries, asking residents if they had any private CCTV they could examine to see if MrVaughan could be spotted.

A Facebook site set up to help in the search, called ‘Missing – Kyle Vaughan’ has attracted more than 16,700 members, with friends and family using the site to post pictures of Mr Vaughan in an appeal for information which might help solve the mystery of his disappearance.

Four people have been arrested on suspicion of murder; a 27-year-old woman and 28-year-old man from Cwmfelinfach and two men aged 24 and 27 from Blackwood.

A22-year-old woman and a 62-year-old man from Newbridge have been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, and a 21-year-old man from Newbridge and a 15-yearold boy from Abercarn have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. All are on bail.

Gwent Police are still appealing for anyone with information to call them on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
