    That seems like an odd place to lose CCTV of Tapi. There are so many businesses in the area I would have expected high CCTV coverage.

    Google maps says it's about a 6 minute walk to the marina district and about a ten minute walk to the river. I hope he's safe somewhere, but it seemed the first thing to check.

    I don't like that it's now been seven days. I hope they're checking CCTV of all businesses in the area.

    So if Tapi was on Whatsapp at 4.50am and then he's sighted in the castle gardens at 5am, he must have had his phone with him. Maybe they can check the last ping site for the phone and see if it's in the same general location of the castle?

    Sigh, young adults (15-30) should be chipped. Only the police could have access in emergencies.
    Be safe Tapi

    I wonder what Tapi was doing during those two hours between the sighting in Castle Gardens and the Marina district. I don't like that the new last sighting has moved to the marina.

    Missing man's family in 'worst nightmare'

    The family of a 21-year-old musician missing for more than a month are living through their "worst nightmare", his father has said.

    A vigil has been held in Swansea for Tapiwa Matuwi, known as Tapi, who went missing after a night out in the city.

    Munyaradzi Zvada said each day without knowledge of his son's whereabouts was "harder and harder".

    The graduate was last seen near Swansea Marina at about 07:00 GMT on 7 February after being at Fiction nightclub.

    Has there been a more accurate last location than "near the marina"
    I'm definitely no marina expert but that one looks quite contained, has it been searched?

    If he's ended up in the sea he might wash up in north Cornwall/Devon, just like a case we had a couple of months ago (Gary, the guy with the red devil tattoo who was also from south Wales, took several weeks for him to be found about 40 miles across the Bristol Channel)
