On Monday officers carried out anniversary checks with drivers in the Cwmffrwd area to trace anyone who was in the area on the night of Mr O'Leary's disappearance.

DCI Jones added: "During the checks police spoke to drivers and gleaned positive information in connection with the investigation. I would like to thank everyone for their patience as they waited to speak to officers.

"We ask anyone who was in the area at the time, who hasn’t already spoken to us, to come forward. They may unwittingly have information that could help the investigation.”

"This clearly remains a very distressing time for his family and we continue to keep them updated."
