Special Service For Missing Schoolboy

A church service has been held in Carmarthen for missing schoolboy Cameron Comey.

It marks one month since the 11-year-old disappeared, with fears he fell into the River Towy.

The vigil was held at St Peter’s Church in the town to show support for Cameron’s family.

A special candle was lit and will continue to burn until he is found.

Rev Leigh Richardson led the service:

“It’s about offering our support and being available.

“Our commitment is that this candle will stay lit now until Cameron is found. 

“That’s a promise that we’ll keep.”

Two of Cameron’s school friends spoke at the service, saying they miss the way he cheered them up and that they miss his friendship.

Headteacher of Queen Elizabeth High School Pete Spencer says the 11-year-old’s disappearance is still very fresh:

“It still feels very raw and coming today I think has stirred all the emotions we felt from the moment we heard the awful news.

“Cameron is always in our thoughts.

Specialist searches of the river have now stopped. But in a statement released by Dyfed-Powys Police, a spokesperson says marine and air sections are continuing with patrol:

“Supporting the family through this ordeal is our priority, and a specialist officer is keeping them fully informed.”

Another vigil is also planned at King Morgan Bridge in the town on Sunday.
