Police in Llanelli are increasingly concerned for the welfare of a missing man. 25 year old Richard Thomas Chandler was last seen at 23.54 on the 3rd July walking along New Dock Road, in the direction of Machynys. He hasn't been heard from since, which is said to be out of character.

Richard is from Kettering in Northamptonshire, but is currently working on a roofing contract in the Trostre area. He has been in the Llanelli area for the past three weeks.

During this time he has been staying in the Miramar Hotel in Station Road on weekdays, before travelling home to Kettering on the weekend.

He's around 5'8" tall, of stocky build, with auburn/dark hair. He was last seen wearing a grey Adidas hoodie, grey tracksuit bottoms with red "V" on the back pockets and black and light blue trainers. Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101.
