A body has been found after a three-year search for a missing man in Wales.
South Wales Police were called at 10.42am today (Sunday) after a community search party searched for long-missing man Jamie Moreno.
Mr Moreno, who was 48 at the time, disappeared after leaving his home in Cardiff around midday on March 23, 2020.
He was spotted by a friend later that day and was last seen on CCTV from a nearby school that afternoon.
Last month, Mr Moreno’s sister Nilsa spoke about how he struggled with the death of her mother and stayed at home for two years after her death.
South Wales Police have now confirmed members of the public who have been searching for him have found a body in the borough where he was last seen.
Formal identification has yet to be made but Mr Moreno’s family have been informed and are being assisted by specialist officials.
A spokesman told Wales Online: “South Wales Police can confirm a body has been found in a wooded area in Pentwyn, Cardiff.
“Police were called at 10.42am today (Sunday 12 March) after a community search party searched for long-missing man Jamie Moreno.
“The formal identification of the body has not yet been carried out as investigations into the crime scene are ongoing.
“Jamie Moreno’s family is currently being assisted by specialized officials.”
