In a freakish and unfortunate incident a gifted cricketer of the Montgomery Cricket Club of Wales, James Corfield has gone missing. The 19-year old cricketer was expected to play a vital match for his team on Saturday, but who would have known that such an unfortunate incident was to unfold.

The young player from Montgomery was last seen at the White Horse public house in Builth Wells at around midnight on Monday, July 24, 2017. Dyfed-Powys Police is concerned about the fact that he has not returned yet, since he was very passionate about his farm animals and never left them unattended.

Police speak:

Explaining the details of the incident, police Superintendent Huw Meredith was quoted by BBC as saying, “Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, are continuing to search for 19-year-old James Corfield around Builth Wells. We are still appealing for anyone who might have seen him late on Monday evening or during the early hours of Tuesday morning.”

“Please ring 101 with any information you might have. Volunteers are continuing to assist, and while we are grateful for their support, we would like to remind people not to undertake their own searches out of consideration for their own safety,” he added.

Hundreds of volunteers are helping the police to find out the whereabouts of a budding cricketer who has shown great promise and potential to make it big in his professional cricketing career.
