Arthur's friend leads new team in Crete search


Shane Brennan

A GROUP of six Denbigh men set off for Greece to help with the search efforts.
The group is lead by Arthur's friend Roger Snaith.
He was part of the first group of friends and family that went to Crete when it was discovered that Arthur was missing.
Mr Snaith said: “I went out with the family the first time they went out there when they first found out that Arthur was missing and then I have been back a couple of weeks.
I have said to the family that we won't give up looking for him so that's why we've got some guys to go back out.
“The area we're going to search is south of the hotel where he stayed when he was out there and I have spoken to North Wales Police and have advised them on the area we are going to search which is basically pushing into the hills.
“I think he may have gone a little bit of a walk to get used to the heat of the area maybe before a few days later he was going to go higher.”
Fundraising efforts in Denbigh have helped to send teams of volunteers to the island to help with the search.
Matty MacDonald, a retained fireman in Denbigh who has gone to Crete with yesterday's groups, paid tribute to the efforts of people in Denbigh to help Arthur's family.
“It's amazing how the town has come together. It's a comment on the positive aspects of social media it has helped to get it out there.”
