A SEARCH is being carried out in the Chirk area today to locate a missing man.

Police said they were dealing with an incident in the Station Avenue area of the town on Sunday (July 7).

And in an update on Monday, North Wales Police said following the discovery of some property near the canal yesterday, the Underwater Search Team will be present along the Shropshire Union Canal in Chirk, near to the marina.

Acting Inspector Rhodri Ifans said: “I am asking people to please avoid Chirk Marina today, and the footpath leading up to, and through the tunnel leading to Chirk Aqueduct to allow the specialist underwater search team to carry out their enquiries.

“I would like to thank the public for their continued patience and understanding and ask anyone with information to contact us via the website, or by calling 101.”
