CAMPAIGNERS helping with the search for missing Denbigh man Arthur Jones are due to hand in a letter to the Prime Minister on Monday calling for more help from the UK government.
They are hoping that the Prime Minister, David Cameron, will send a team of professionals to help with the search efforts in Crete.
With support from Arthur’s family the #CameronPromised campaign has taken off on social media.
5 weeks ago today my dad was last seen in this world and we need help finding him. #cameronpromised support to help #findarthur where is it?
One of the campaign organisers, Lee Hadwin, said: “I should be handing over a letter on behalf of Jeff Jones and the family outside Downing Street this Monday July 28.
“On behalf of Jeff , Angela and the family I want to thank everyone from Denbigh , the surrounding areas and people from all over the world who have sent in messages of support in the form of #FindArthur and #CameronPromised .
“I know that what everyone is doing will also give hope to other families around the world who are also living in ‘Limbo’ and waiting on news of a missing loved one.
“We still need peple to keep posting #CameronPromised signs up via Fb , twitter and other social media platforms, as we really need to get a professional search team with dogs and equipment out to Crete.
“I would also like to thank local resident Leah Roberts and her team for the efforts and fundraising events that they have organised and continue to in
helping Jeff and the family.”
There is a group of Athur’s friends on the island helping with the search.
In a Facebook update posted yesterday, group leader, Roger Snaith said: “Today it was another early start to cover as much of the area as possible before it got to hot.
“We were joined today by two expats that speak the Greek language, they helped us when I was last in Crete, we decided to break the team into two three man teams, one team would search south west of his hotel and the other would search south east we covered a very large area both teams covered around 12 -15 miles on foot over the hills and olive plantations.
“We then also used the two hired cars to travel between all the villages handing out flyers and speaking to the locals to try and see if anyone had seen him.
“Today we searched in the heat for a total of nine hours, it was again a very hard day,
The whole team again pushed themselves in the hot and dry hilly conditions,another brilliant effort however the only downside is there was still no sign of Arthur.
“We go again tomorrow we will not give up,this team will keep going.”
