AN ABERTRIDWR man has been missing since April this year and there are still no new leads.
The communities of Senghenydd and Abertridwr are together in their concern for Trevor Elias, a 77-year-old-man who seemingly vanished in April this year.
He was reported missing on Saturday April 7.
Caerphilly County Borough Councillor for Aber Valley, John Roberts said: "It has been a long time and the community is worried and we all hope that he will return safe and well.
"It must be extremely difficult for the family especially since his flat on Ilan Road in the village has been cleared.
"We have a meeting with police about issues in the village and we have discussed the disappearance of Trevor.
"It is very difficult for people who are used to seeing Trevor who would speak to people and was known as a friendly man.
"We are a close knit community and when we lose one we all feel the distress.
Trevor is one of us and we hope he returns safe and well."
Mr Elias has been missing from his Abertridwr home for over four months now - he was reported missing on Saturday April 7.
