Body found in search for missing man last seen in February

A body has been found in the search for a missing man last seen in Merthyr Tydfil.

South Wales Police said an unidentified body has been discovered during a search on Tuesday for missing pensioner Maldwyn Miles.

Mr Miles, 67, was last sighted near the Brecon Mountain Railway at Pant on February 22 after taking a bus to Merthyr the day before.

His daughter issued an appeal last week urging the pensioner from Barry to get in touch.

She said: “If you do not want to come home please just let someone know you are safe. Dad, please let us know you’re ok.”

A spokeswoman for South Wales Police the body had not been formally identified.

Mr Miles’ family have been informed.
