The 19-year-old was last seen at the White Horse pub in Builth Wells at around midnight on Monday 24th July.

He was reported missing shortly before 2pm on Tuesday 25 July after failing to meet his family at the Royal Welsh Show, where he had been camping with friends.

Montgomery Cricket Club says it has cancelled its match on Saturday to allow players and supporters to continue searching for the, 'outstanding cricketer'.

James is described as being 6ft 2in tall, of slim build, with short brown hair. He was last seen wearing a blue Abercrombie and Fitch shirt and jeans.

The club are still concerned about the whereabouts of James Corfield. He’s an outstanding cricketer and friend to everyone at the club, and we can’t wait to get him back. Our thoughts are with Louise, Brian, Thomas and Emma, all of whom are at the heart of our cricketing family at Lymore.

We’re very thankful to the large number of players, supporters and friends who are helping to find James, and we‘ll be doing all we can until he returns.

Because of the efforts made by our players and supporters throughout the week, we won’t be putting teams out this Saturday, and thanks are due to Cound and Ludlow Cricket Clubs for their understanding during this period.
