A landlord in Swansea has gone missing, causing a murder investigation to begin.
Alec Warburton, 59, has not been seen since 31st July.
South Wales Police has appealed to his lodger, David Craig Ellis, who they believe has information about Warburton’s disappearance.
Yesterday, Det Supt Paul Hurley directly appealed for Ellis to get in touch.
Warburton was reported missing from his home in Vivian Road, Sketty, just after midday on 2nd August.
Officers have been searching in the property, where Ellis also lived, and in its surrounding area. A police tent has been erected on the street.
Police are also looking for a green Peugeot 205 with the number plate M805 HFJ. They hope that someone has seen it.
Det Supt Hurley says: “This car was driven to north Wales on Saturday 1st August and we want to hear from anyone who may have seen it or David Ellis at any time between 2pm and midnight that day between Caersws and Betws-y-Coed.
“The car was returned to Swansea during the following morning. We know it was used in the Swansea area until 4th August and it has not been located since.”
To Ellis, he adds: “We want to find out what has happened to Alec Warburton. I believe that you have valuable information which will help us in our inquiries.”1
