The father of a Swansea man who's been missing for more than two week, has pleaded with the public for more information about the whereabouts of his son.

Tapiwa Matuwi has not been seen since 2am on Thursday 7 February when he was spotted by friends in Fiction nightclub in Wind Street.

The 21-year-old was later captured on CCTV in the Castle Gardens area at around 5am.

His father, Munyaradza Zvada, said not knowing has left his family broken:

Everyday that passes without my son I'm thinking, am I going to be able to see him again? Any single day I go without him is breaking us as a family and our life has come to a stop since we found out he was missing.

I'm keeping my head up because I have a wife who is going through an emotional period and is struggling and I have a ten-year-old daughter who asks everyday, where is my brother? And i don't have any answers. Someone, somewhere knows some critical information and I just wish they they could come out and tell us some more information.

– Munyaradza Zvada, Tapi's father

Mr Matuwi, known as Tapi, is described as 5'6" tall and of slim build. He has black hair with orange on top and very light stubble.

He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap with red logo, a red jacket with Bieber written in white on the reverse, and a white hoodie underneath. He was also wearing dark blue jeans, and high-top shoes.
