DORSET residents are being asked for their help to find a missing man.

North Wales Police are asking anyone from Dorset who may have been on holiday to Crete recently to help them find missing Denbigh man Robert Arthur Jones.

On June 18, Mr Jones visited the World War Two cemetery in Souda Bay, to the east of Chania, and signed the visitor book.

Officers, who are assisting the Greek authorities, are keen to speak to anyone who was at the location.

Superintendent Steve Williams said: “We know that Arthur has attended there on June 18th, probably around the early morning time. The visitor’s book shows that there were a number of British people there on the same day.

“Is your name on this visitors list or do you know anyone who has signed their name in the book?

“Our hope is that someone remembers seeing or even speaking to him.”

“I would also ask that if anyone took photographs there to check whether Arthur is in the background as it may identify the clothing Arthur was wearing.”

Mr Jones, 73, began his holiday in Crete on June 17 and has failed to make contact with his family and friends since June 18.

Mr Jones is a former soldier and a keen walker, is 5’6 tall, medium build with short grey hair and a grey moustache.

Anyone with any information should the police on 101 quoting the North Wales Police reference number R103354 .
