Weekly produces special edition dedicated to missing schoolboy

A special edition “of light and hope” dedicated to a missing schoolboy has been produced by a regional weekly newspaper.

Yesterday’s Carmarthen Journal featured a wrap, pictured below, using a photograph taken from a vigil held for for 11-year-old Cameron Comey, who has been missing for nine days.

Cameron was playing with his younger brother last Tuesday near the River Towy, in Carmarthen, when he entered the water.

The vigil was held on Sunday on a bridge over the Towy.

Journal editor Emma Bryant said: “As the search for Cameron enters its ninth day, teams continue their tremendous efforts searching the River Towy and its banks.

“Cameron remains constantly in the thoughts of the town as the days go by.

“People have rallied together to support the Comey family and each other over the past week and as the local paper we felt we wanted to create something special.”

The Journal is also backing a fund launched to raise money for the Comey family and the rescue workers searching for Cameron.

Emma added: “The past week has been awful for Carmarthenshire. Despite such difficult circumstances it has been amazing to see our community pull together.

“As the local paper, in the heart of the community, we are delighted to support the funding campaign to help support the volunteer services who have done so much for us.”
