Fears grow for sailor (90) after empty boat found

By Ryan Wilkinson

A 90-year-old sailor is feared missing after his empty dinghy was found adrift off the Welsh coast.

Arthur Ray Taylor, known as Archie, was last seen at 9.30am on Saturday, when he left his accommodation to take his dinghy out from Gwbert boat club, Ceredigion, Dyfed-Powys Police said.

A large air and sea search was launched by the Milford Haven Coastguard and RNLI after they were alerted that he had not returned that evening.

Police have appealed for anyone who has seen Mr Taylor or knows his whereabouts to contact them. He is 5ft 4ins, of slim build and with grey hair.
