Appeal to Prime Minister as missing Arthur campaign goes global


Shane Brennan

CAMPAIGNERS searching for Arthur Jones have called on the Prime Minister to provide more help to find the missing Denbigh man.

Denbigh artist, Lee Hadwin, who has been helping Arthur’s family in their attempts to find Arthur made the call after the campaign to find him went global.

Mr Hadwin said: “We have called upon Downing Street to send out a team of at least 10 professionals to help with the search. David Cameron did say that he would do everything he could to help with the search for Arthur. We need this to step up to the next stage.”

This follows the campaign to find Arthur storming social media in the past week.

People around the world have been pictured holding up a sign that says ‘#FindArthur’ on Twitter.

The new appeal is using #CameronPromised on Twitter.

The campaign started last week and has received the support of celebrities such as Game of Thrones actor, Jerome Flynn, Pride and Prejudice star Matthew Macfadyen and Transformers star Jack Reynor

Mr Hadwin said: “After trying to help with the #FreeAJStaff for the reporters in Egypt, I approached Leah Roberts who is a local resident of Denbigh and put forward the Idea of getting the #FindArthur to go global.

“We have worked on this for over a week – the difficult part was keeping it from the press and people posting #FindArthur banners on Facebook and other social media.

“I have led the press campaign down here in London for Arthur’s family now since he went missing – due to my art and being a major advocate for the Missing People charity this has helped.

“Over the last week I have managed to get hundreds of people all over the world holding #FindArthur signs .

“I have had an email back from Downing Street and am awaiting a reply from the PM for a meeting as he said in PM question Time that he would do all he could to help.

“I am now currently working on another campaign with businesses in the city of London.”
