Police have renewed an appeal to find a man who disappeared without trace a year ago.

Clwyd Davies, 69, from Acrefair near Wrexham, became known as the "horse hoarder" and was last seen on 6 April, 2013.

He went missing after appearing in court for neglect of horses he kept on his land at Trefynant Park in Acrefair.

His friends and supporters staged a vigil on Talacre beach in Flintshire in June last year.

Police were alerted by a concerned neighbour after he failed to turn up for an appointment.

North Wales Police are now renewing their appeal to help find Mr Davies. He is described as 5ft 11ins (1.8m) tall, of heavy build and normally has a thick beard.

He usually wears jeans, a fleece top and woolly hat, and is well known in the local community.

Insp Andy Jones said: "Despite extensive inquiries and numerous media appeals, as well as a significant number of responses from the public, we remain concerned about Mr Davies's disappearance and I would ask anyone who has seen him or knows of his whereabouts to get in touch.

"I would also ask Mr Davies himself to make contact with the police if he is able to do so, to confirm that he is safe and well."

Anyone with information can contact North Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
