Matthew Rees has been missing from his home in Treneol in Aberdare since Saturday 11th May.
According to police, he left his home at 8.30am to get a tattoo in Porthcawl. His family believed he would also visit Newton beach while in the area.
The last contact Matthew's family had was a message at 8.30pm on the same day to let them know he had missed his bus back to Aberdare. Police then received a call just before midnight, when he sounded considerably distressed. Officers say they are very concerned for his welfare.
He is described as around 5ft 8 and has shaven, brown hair with a pale complexion. At the time he went missing he was wearing a black t-shirt.
Anyone with information is urged to call South Wales Police’s non emergency 101 number or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

The Crown Prosecution Service, which worked "closely" with South Wales Police in its investigation into the death of Colette Davies, released a statement when the case against John Clifton Davies was dropped in March.
It says that the police got new statements from two people in India - "potentially direct eyewitness evidence" - which "could be said to undermine the prosecution case."
This meant that no evidence was offered against him, and he was formally found not guilty of murder and fraud.
In November 2011 the CPS advised that, based on the evidence available at that time, John Clifton Davies should be charged with murder and two counts of fraud. As is normal in cases such as this, the police investigation continued after charges were laid.
As part of that investigation, officers from South Wales Police recently visited the Himachal Pradesh region of India.
– Felicity Galvin, Senior Crown Prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service, Wales - statement from March
During that visit the police became aware of significant new information including statements from two people, who had not previously come forward, who could potentially provide direct eyewitness evidence. This new information could be said to undermine the prosecution case.
In the light of these developments, the CPS reviewed the case again and concluded that the evidential requirements laid out in the Code for Crown Prosecutors are no longer met in relation to both the murder and fraud charges.
John Clifton Davies, who is originally from Milton Keynes, was accused of killing his wife Colette to claim £132,000 in her life insurance payout.
They married in 2003, and went on a delayed honeymoon to India 14 months later.
A week into the holiday, Colette fell more than 80ft from a viewing point at a steep gorge in the Imichal Pradesh region.
Her body was flown back to her home town of Bridgend where she was cremated after an inquest recorded an open verdict.
South Wales Police says "new and significant information came to light" which led to the case against John Clifton Davies to be dropped.
He has criticised the force for holding him for 16 months without bail, before finally speaking to key witnesses.
– South Wales Police statement
In 2010, South Wales Police launched an investigation into the death of 39-year-old Colette Davies which occurred in India in 2004.
Following a joint investigation with Himachal Pradesh State Police in Northern India and in consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, a 50-year-old man was charged with her murder and fraud.
During the investigation which continued following the charge, new and significant information came to light which has been reviewed by the CPS.
As a result of this review it has now been decided that proceedings will be discontinued.
A man who was imprisoned for 16 months after being accused of murdering his Welsh wife, has criticised South Wales Police over their handling of the case.
Collette Davies, from Bridgend, was found dead at the bottom of a ravine in a remote part of India during her honeymoon with John Clifton Davies in 2004. Mr Davies was arrested seven years later and charged with murder and fraud, but was cleared of all charges last month.
He told this morning's Daybreak that his time in prison was "horrendous", said "a lot of questions have to be asked" about South Wales Police and that his lawyers are "looking serious" into what steps he can take now.
Police were called to an incident last night where a woman from Treherbert was set upon by what is believed to have been an American Bull Dog.

Police are investigating a burglary in which a widow's video diary of her husbands last days was stolen from her home.
Her engagement and wedding rings were also taken from her home on Coldbrook Road East in Barry, along with some technical goods.
Police say the incident took place sometime overnight between Friday 8th March and the following morning.
