One year after a 77-year-old man went missing, a new appeal has been made for information.

Trevor Elias, of Abertridwr, Caerphilly county, was seen in nearby Senghenydd between 23:15 BST on Thursday, 5 April 2012 and shortly after midnight.

He was reported missing the following Saturday.

Gwent Police are carrying out a fresh leaflet drop in the search for information and say his family need to know what has happened to him.

Mr Elias was seen outside the Leigh Club in Senghenydd on 5 April and had earlier been at The Buffs Club on Abertridwr Square.

He is described as about 6ft (1.82m), of very thin build, with brown short hair, and he wears glasses.

He was last seen on CCTV at 00:23 on Friday, 6 April walking past the cenotaph in Senghenydd and heading down Commercial Street in the direction of Abertridwr.

Two women were seen walking ahead of him on Commercial Street toward Senghenydd Square at approximately 00:20, but they have still not been identified.

It is also believed that three vehicles and a man would also have passed him as they came up Commercial Street heading toward Abertridwr.

Insp Gareth Jones said: "One year on, we are continuing to conduct extensive inquiries to establish what has happened to Trevor.

"While the community have been very supportive we still need their help in trying to identify the people who may have seen Trevor that night.

"We believe that three vehicles passed him on the road and that others - two women walking ahead of him and one man who was walking in the opposite direction - may have seen him. We are also appealing to local residents to check their outbuildings and allotments for any signs that Trevor may have been there.

"Trevor's family need to know what has happened to him and we are making all efforts to trace him."

Anyone with information can call Gwent Police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
