Search For Missing Pensioner Gathers Steam

#FindArthur trends globally as the search for missing man continues

It hasn't been that long since the hashtag search #FindGareth began to trend all over Twitter. Celebs and people all around the world were seen to be getting behind the campaign in the hope he would be found.We haven't heard much more about missing Gareth since when he was reported missing months ago, however what was clear was that the idea of spreading the word hashtag-style worked wonders for the cause.

Now it seems the very 21st Century search technique (search posters were soo last decade!) has caught on again in the search for another missing person.This time it is all in aid of finding Welsh pensioner, Arthur Jones, 73, who has been missing since the 19th June when he went on a walking holiday to the Island of Crete.

#FindArthur has been buzzing around Twitter and has caught the attention of many Twitter users, with a couple of high profile supporters jumping in to help too such as darts player Eric Bristow and TV star Matthew Macfadyen to name a few.

Pictures of people all over the world holding up signs with the hashtag '#FindArthur' on have spread across the world with people getting involved from Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand and the US.

Mr Jones' son Jeff said that the response to the campaign has been "overwhelming."

He also added "We were prepared to try anything to raise awareness...it really does take your breath away that people have got behind it."

Arthur went disappeared only 2 days after arriving in Crete. He was last traced by police to have visited a war cemetery at Souda Bay near the city of Chania in early July but cannot be found after that date.

Police are hoping that somebody in the area at that time will have information but for now his disappearance remains a mystery.
