Campaigners in the search for Denbigh's missing Arthur Jones have handed in a letter at Downing Street calling on the Prime Minister to do more to help the search.

Arthur was last seen on the Greek island of Crete on June 19 where he was on a hiking holiday.

The letter, written by Arthur's son Jeff, reminds the Prime Minister of the commitment he made to Chris Ruane MP at Prime Minister's Questions to everything he could to help wthe search for Arthur.

In the letter Jeff says: "Our father is a good man. He was a volunteer for Help for Heroes fundraising, has been a collector for the poppy appeal for over 20 years, served as an instructor in the British Army Cadet Force for 35 years preparing the next generation of British Soldiers for service, was present at Caernarfon Castle for Prince Charles Investiture as 1st Battalion Royal Welch Fusilier soldier, is a member of the Old Comrades association, has been the Parade Marshall for the last 18 years at the local Rememberance Sunday Parade and because of all he has done he is an extremely popular member of his local community.

"All we ask is some professional help and assistance from our government to find our father and bring him home."

Lee Hadwin, who has been campaigning to help the search for Arthur, said: "I handed over the letter on behalf of Jeff Jones his family ,the community of Denbigh and supporters from all over the globe to Downing street at 10am this morning.

"I was assured it will be given to the Prime Minister. I later did an interview out side number 10 with the BBC calling on David Cameron to up hold his commitment in helping find Arthur. 

"I will continue to help Jeff and the family in all media matters moving forward. I am totally disgusted at the Government and the efforts being made to help find Arthur, I am calling on David Cameron to act now."
