A MAN who was reported missing has been found dead in “unexplained” circumstances, police have confirmed.
Police have been treating the death of Craig Edwards, 41, who is from the Wrexham area, as unexplained after his body was discovered in a hotel in Cardiff on Friday.
An online plea for Mr Edwards’ safe return was launched by relatives and close friends following his disappearance on Wednesday, June 13, two days before his death was recorded.
Inspector Alun Evans, of North Wales Police, confirmed Mr Edwards was found dead in a hotel in Cardiff after they were informed he was missing.
“His death is presently being treated as unexplained,” said Insp Evans.
“Mr Edwards’ next of kin have been informed. In due course a coroner’s inquest into his death will be opened.”
Mr Edwards is understood to have been employed by Tritech on Wrexham Industrial Estate and as a child attended Ysgol Morgan Llwyd, Wrexham.
Insp Louise Davies, of South Wales Police, confirmed last night the death was still being treated as unexplained.
She said no further information was likely to be released until an inquest is opened by the coroner.
The name of the hotel where Mr Edwards was found has not been released by police.
A spokesman for the Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan Coroner’s Office confirmed the death has been reported but said a post-mortem examination had yet to be opened and no further information could be released at present.
