A motorcycle club in Rhuddlan, Denbighshire, is collecting donations for the family of missing member Arthur Jones, the Rhyl Journal reports.
The Whistlestop cafe and bike club has raised more than £1,000 for the 73-year-old man from Denbigh, who disappeared during his holiday trip to the Greek island of Crete in mid-June.
Bikers have raised the cash through collections at the coffee shop and from club members. The Conwy bike club also contributed to the cause, donating around £375.
Arthur Jones has been a member of the Rhuddlan club for more than 15 years and is among the nicest people you could ever meet, said Jimmy Aspinall, a founder member of the club.
The support the club has received while raising money for Arthur's family is touching, Aspinall said, adding that this shows how much this man is respected by everybody involved with the club. Anyone that has come to know Arthur has been willing to donate some money and the club has already sent the funds to the missing man's family who are searching for him on the island, Aspinall commented.
Arthur Jones is an experienced hiker and was a member of the British Army Cadets for more than 30 years. He was staying at Paradakalis apartments but has not been seen since 19 June.
Anyone with information about Arthur Jones can contact North Wales Police or alternatively contact Crimestoppers.
