Search for Arthur Jones: a body is found



Police in Crete searching for missing Denbigh pensioner Arthur Jones have found a body.

The 73 year-old has not been seen or heard from since Thursday 19th June, when he sent home a postcard to his family. North Wales Police have confirmed the body was discovered in a rural area of Chania on the northern half of the island. It has not been formally identified but Mr Jones’ family have been informed.

Mr Jones was reported missing when he failed to board his return flight home on 24th June after a holiday. His son, Jeff Jones from Prestatyn, was among those who flew to Crete to help with the search, though he was critical of Greek detectives’ work. Two detectives from North Wales also took part in the search for a week.

A social media campaign, #FindArthur – aimed at raising continued awareness of Mr Jones’ disappearance – attracted international support on Facebook and Twitter. Prime Minister, David Cameron, also pledged to help with the search, though last week, a letter was sent to Downing Street in an effort to maintain his pledge.
