Public asked to join search for missing Michael Davies
A Facebook appeal is urging people to join a search for a south Wales pensioner who vanished during a holiday to the Isle of Wight.
Michael Davies, 71, from Blaina, Blaenau Gwent, had been staying at a hotel in Sandown with his wife Pat when he disappeared on 26 May.
Despite numerous land, sea and air searches by Hampshire Constabulary he is still missing.
Now Facebook campaigners are organising a public search on Wednesday evening.
The appeal has been made on Facebook page Help Find Michael Davies.
A police spokesman said: "We appreciate offers of support from members of the public to find Michael Davies, and are aware of proposed plans for a public search in Sandown.
"A key line of inquiry continues to be a specific appeal for members of the public on the island to check their own gardens, sheds, outbuildings or caravans.
"It is possible Mr Davies sought refuge in the local area where he may have become confused, unwell and unable to call for help."
There is no evidence to suggest Mr Davies has been the victim of a crime.
But there is concern that he may not have access to blood pressure medication that he needs.
