I say this because after arguing with a loved one on a night out I attempted something that at the time I thought was my only way out , but thankfully I was saved. So if you read this Ben please get in touch with either your family or police to let them now you are ok. You can work it out ."

Wife's appeal after husband, Ben Caplan, goes missing in Caerleon

Campaign Series: SEARCH: Ben Caplan in the clothes he was wearing when last seen SEARCH: Ben Caplan in the clothes he was wearing when last seen

A NEWPORT woman is appealing to the public for help, after she reported her husband missing yesterday afternoon.

South Wales Argus worker Ben Caplan was out with friends in Caerleon on Saturday night. CCTV footage shows him in the village just before midnight.

“He was out drinking and nobody’s seen him since. It’s totally out of character,” said Danielle Caplan.

He was wearing dark jeans and a dark t-shirt on the night he was last seen. He is described as 5ft 8in, with shoulder-length brown hair.

He is pictured wearing the clothes he was wearing on the night he disappeared.

Severn Area Rescue Association launched a search from Uskmouth to Caerleon on Sunday evening and a police helicopter was called out.

If anyone has seen Ben or has information that could help they should call Gwent police on 101.
