That is such a beautiful and heartfelt letter. All that can be said is that Owain is much missed and all this must be incredibly hard to live with day in day out.

I know this is 4 days old but I only just spotted it. From the BBC:

Dyfed-Powys Police have now received a report about an unconfirmed sighting of Mr Roberts at nearby Plwmp post office on the day of his disappearance.

The man was offered a lift by two women and a man from the south of England.

He was complaining about not reaching the area's coastal path in time to meet someone.

Mr Roberts was due to meet his father near a church in the hamlet of Mwnt on 10 March, but failed to show up.

"A report has been received of a male fitting Owain's description being in Plwmp Post Office/shop at lunchtime on the day he went missing," said Insp Louise Bradshaw, who is leading the search.

"The man was talking about not getting to the coastal path in time to meet someone.

"In the shop were three other customers, who appeared to be together, and they offered him a lift. These were one male and two females, described as having southern England possibly Oxfordshire accents."

Insp Bradshaw said the area was popular with tourists and the three people could have been on holiday at the time.

She added: "I would appeal to anyone who may have been staying in the Ceredigion/west Wales area at the time and who offered a man a lift to the coastal path to contact police immediately."

This sounds a bit more promising. Let's hope it leads somewhere, Mike. And, as Robert said, let's hope someone knows something.

Let's hope it turns into something substantial.  There is another festival there this weekend, and Trace is going along.

Latest Press Release

POSSIBLE SIGHTING OF MISSING MAN AT FESTIVAL

Police say a missing man from Wales may have been spotted at a North Devon music festival.

Dyfed Powys Police are appealing to anyone involved in festivals this summer to be vigilant and keep a look out for missing person Owain Mon Roberts, 36yrs of Cardigan, West Wales.  Owain is a skilled sound technician at Theatr Mwldan in Cardigan and a lead guitarist with a rock band, he has been missing since Saturday 10 March 2012 and it is very possible that he could be working the festival circuit. Owain's family, friends and colleagues are desperate for him to contact them and are increasingly worried for his safety.

Police have been contacted by a witness, who saw a man that they believe might have been Owain at the Llama festival in Lynton and Lynmouth on Saturday 9 June.

While the witness does not personally know Mr Roberts, they are aware he is missing. The man seen was wearing a black long sleeved hoodie style top, with knee length shorts and a black baseball cap with green writing on it. He had greying hair with a darker beard that may have been plaited or braided in some way.

Inspector Lynn Rees at Aberystwyth Police Station said: "We are appealing to anyone who was at the festival, who may know the identity of this man, or have any knowledge of Owain Roberts's whereabouts to contact Dyfed-Powys Police.”

"We are particularly keen to identify any photographs or video footage of the event that may include footage of the person described, in order to positively identify the person reported as Owain or eliminate this sighting from the enquiry. Owain has played in a band, and worked as a music technician so it is possible that he would attend such a music festival, or potentially work as a sound technician at such an event."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dyfed Powys Police on 101 and ask for Cardigan Police Station.


PRESS RELEASE: MISSING PERSON Owain Mon ROBERTS
For immediate release Friday 8 June 2012.
 
A new Nationwide public appeal has been made by Dyfed-Powys Police in their search for missing Cardigan man Owain Mon Roberts, three months after his disappearance.
 
Owain Roberts, a 36 year old man from Cardigan, was last seen on Saturday 10th March 2012.  He left his home in Aberystwyth Road, Cardigan intending to walk to a local beach.  He had arranged to be collected by his father outside the Church of the Holy Cross at Mwnt Beach around Midday; however Owain was not at the meeting point.  We know he arrived at his destination that morning as he sent a photo of the beach in a text message, which is time and date stamped.
 
Extensive enquiries and searches have been made to find Mr Roberts, however there have been no confirmed sightings of him since Saturday 10th March.  Owain’s family, friends and Dyfed Powys Police are increasingly concerned for his welfare.
 
Inspector Lynn Rees from Aberystwyth Police Station said:
“There have been a number of confirmed sightings by friends of Mr Roberts of him in the Cardigan area on Saturday 10th March; he was definitely seen walking along Gwbert Road towards Mwnt that morning and another sighting later in the day.
 
We have also had several reported sightings of a person matching a similar description to Mr Roberts, most notably at Plwmp, where a witness reports a man, who he believes to be Owain Roberts, in the company of an unknown male and two females, described as having southern England, possibly Oxfordshire accents.  This was at approximately midday in the village shop/post office”.
 
Most significant about this sighting is that the man fitting Owain’s description was heard talking about not getting back to the coastal path in time to meet someone.

Inspector Rees added "We are working with Mr Roberts’ family, his partner and National charity Missing People to find Mr Roberts and have extended the parameters of our appeal to find him.  As part of the National Missing People campaign appeals for Owain have featured in the Big Issue magazine and also in the Daily Mirror.”

Owain Roberts has travelled the UK extensively through his sound technician job at Theatr Mwldan and is known to have contacts in the Cardiff area, where he was lead guitarist with rock band "The Reasoning”.  He may also have an affinity with the Acton area of London, having previously been a student at The Guitar Institute there and The University of West London (formerly Thames Valley University) have been supportive in assisting with publicising the search for their former student.

Appeals for information about Owain’s disappearance have been broadcast on BBC, ITV and S4C news programmes and websites.  Social Media sites such as Facebook and Twitter have been effective in sharing information and distribution of posters and publicity throughout the UK.  There is also a Youtube video appeal that has received over 5000 views.

Despite this activity, there has been no contact from Mr Roberts with his family, which is out of character for him.  Dyfed Powys Police are appealing to any one who knows Mr Roberts’ whereabouts or has any information, particularly if you think you gave Owain a lift on Saturday 10th March or may have seen him since that date to contact Dyfed-Powys Police on the 101 number or 0845 330 2000 to help with the investigation.

Owain is also urged to contact the Missing People’s confidential 24/7 service called Message Home for advice and support or they can help him to contact loved ones by calling or texting 116 000 from any landline or mobile phone.

Owain Roberts is 5ft 10ins tall and of medium build. He has blue/grey eyes, salt and pepper hair colour, although he was clean shaven on Saturday 10th March, we expect him to now have a beard.  He has a chip in his left tooth and 4 steel hoop and ball earrings in his left ear. When last seen he was wearing a black jumper, a black hooded thick knit cardigan, dark jeans and khaki coloured trainers, he was carrying a grey shoulder bag that had orange stitching. 

If anyone has information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please contact Dyfed Powys Police or Missing People on the numbers above.

If anyone hasn't noticed it on facebook, there is a fundraiser - an 8 mile row - for Missing People.  Running 8 miles would be quite a feat, but rowing 8 miles sounds like seriously hard work.  Still, I suppose that they're not going to row uphill.
