Police in south Wales, searching for a 69-year-old man missing since Sunday, have recovered a bumper bearing the registration of his vehicle.
The search for Russell Sherwood resumed at first light this morning, after adverse weather conditions meant officers had to stand down yesterday afternoon.
Officers are focusing their attentions on the River Ogmore, and specifically the area near the dipping bridge.
This remains a difficult search in very testing conditions. The river is very swollen and fast flowing, and as such specialist officers with specialist equipment are conducting the search. Colleagues from the National Police Air Service will be deployed to assist with the search this morning, again dependent on the weather conditions, and we are also being assisted by the Coastguard and South Wales Fire and Rescue Service. The conditions at the search area remain treacherous and while we understand that people want to assist in helping to find Mr Sherwood, we would strongly advise the public to stay clear of the area.
