CCTV images released of missing Pontypridd man Joseph Lacey

South Wales Police have released CCTV pictures in continuing efforts to trace a missing 28-year-old from Pontypridd.

Joseph Lacey was last seen outside Pontypridd Train Station early on Monday morning.

The pictures capture his last known movements during an evening out in Pontypridd Town Centre, where police say he’d been to the Morgan’s Tavern - formerly known as the Criterion - and then onto the Soul Suite.

Officers say they hope the images will help jog somebody’s memory if they saw Joseph out that night, or if they have seen him since.

Joseph is described as five foot seven, with a slim build and short brown hair. At the time he went missing he was unshaven and was wearing a blue polo shirt with white edging on the collar and the cuffs, light blue jeans, and dark trainers.

Police say his disappearance is out of character and concern is growing.

We have a team of officers, including specialist search and community teams out looking for him right now. Late-night revellers are potentially key witnesses, as are those employed in the night time economy such as taxi drivers and bar workers.
