Residents of the street where Ben Thompson was last seen today received visits from police officers desperately seeking information.

Householders on Lawrenny Avenue in Cardiff were asked questions about the missing man who has not been seen since February 2.

Mr Thompson, 34, disappeared after watching Wales’ opening Six Nations game against Ireland.

Following the match, he stayed in the city centre, but appeared to walk off on his own at around 6.30pm.

He was later captured on CCTV crossing Leckwith Road into Lawrenny Avenue at 7.17pm before he was seen walking down a lane at the end of Lawrenny Avenue towards wasteland.

Police officers today carried out door-to-door inquiries as they continued their efforts to find him.They were also seen searching residents’ gardens.

Meanwhile, police confirmed that a wallet had been found close to Fitzalan High School – which is on Lawrenny Avenue – but added it did not belong to Mr Thompson.

On Monday Chief Inspector Eddie Ough said his officers would continue to look for Mr Thompson for the foreseeable future.

“The search is continuing and Ben’s family, who are understandably desperately worried, are being updated on progress of the search by family liaison officers,” he said.

Mr Thompson is described as 5ft 9in, with short brown hair, blue eyes, and was last seen wearing brown leather lace-up boots, blue jeans, and a white shirt with blue thin stripes.

Anyone with information should contact the Command Room at Cardiff Bay Police Station on 02920 338 465.
