Detectives investigating the disappearance of 24-year-old Kyle Vaughan from Newbridge are continuing to make enquiries in a number of areas and are appealing for information from members of the public.

A team of detectives from the Gwent Police Major Incident Team, dedicated Neighbourhood Policing officers and forensic experts are involved in investigating the circumstances surrounding Kyle's disappearance 17 days ago.

Specialist search officers have been deployed and detailed searches of several areas continue. The police helicopter and dog section have been utilised during the investigation.

The last believed sighting of Kyle was on the A467 between Risca and Crosskeys, some time between 11pm and 11.45pm on December 30th 2012. It is believed he was wearing a dark coloured beanie hat, a dark coloured t-shirt, ¾ length denim shorts, white trainers, and a gold chain.

On the same night at approximately 11.45pm, officers found Kyle's car - a silver Peugeot 306 - which had been involved in a collision.

Senior investigating officer Detective Superintendent Peter Jones said: "We want to reassure people that we are making every effort to locate Kyle and to investigate the circumstances surrounding his disappearance.

"Family liaison officers are continuing to provide Kyle's family with support at this very difficult and upsetting time.

"I'm urging anyone who has any information about Kyle's disappearance, no matter how unimportant it may seem, to contact Gwent Police on 101. Information can also be passed on with complete anonymity via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111."
