Gwent Police is appealing for information to locate a missing elderly couple from the Risca area.

67 year old Patricia Sarah Pugh (known as Sarah) and 70 year old husband Robert Isaac Pugh were last seen at their home address in Risca at approximately 9.40am on Saturday 19th September.

They are believed to be travelling in a silver Vauxhall Astra Estate, registration number CA09 LFO.

Detective Chief Inspector Peter Jones who is leading the investigation said:

“Gwent Police and the family of Mr and Mrs Pugh are extremely concerned about the whereabouts and welfare of Sarah and Robert.

“Every effort is being made to locate the couple. They are both considered vulnerable due to their age and it is imperative that they are located as soon as possible due to Sarah’s ill health.

“I urge Sarah and Robert to contact police as soon as possible to let us know they are safe and well and appeal to members of the public to contact police immediately if they see the couple or the car they are travelling in.”
