A rugby fan who disappeared after watching the Six Nations action in Cardiff has now been missing for one week.

Ben Thompson, 34, had been enjoying the Wales v Ireland rugby international with friends shortly before he vanished.

CCTV footage shows Ben walking at the end of Lawrenny Avenue in the Leckwith area of Cardiff on Saturday night.

Officers say there have been no further confirmed sightings of Ben since, and there has been no activity on his mobile phone.

They have confirmed their search will continue this weekend and into next week.

Ben's devastated family have been putting up posters and handed out leaflets in a bid for information.

At a press conference last week, his wife Jo described her husband as "kind and loving", and "loved by everyone who knows him."
