In the hunt for a 65-year-old former BBC editor who disappeared on New Year’s Eve, a body has been discovered.
The former editor of BBC Radio Cymru, Aled Glynne Davies, was last seen on December 31 at Pontcanna, Cardiff.
His family announced in an Instagram post that his body was discovered in a river on Wednesday.
The body is thought to be his, according to South Wales Police, and Supt Michelle Conquer further stated, “We continue to support Aled’s family at this extremely sad time.”
She said investigations were continuing “to determine the circumstances surrounding the death”.
His son, Gruffudd Glyn, wrote: “We are heartbroken to announce that Dad was discovered in the river this morning.
“Now it’s time for us all to relax. Let us all celebrate Dad’s life.”
In an effort to locate Mr. Davies, his family and friends had made a plea for information, particularly camera evidence.
“We are heartbroken,” says Aled Davies’s son, Gruffudd Glyn
Mr. Glyn claimed that the absence of video of him that evening hampered the search.
Former coworker of Mr. Davies, BBC presenter Huw Edwards, had also made an appeal for assistance in locating him.
