Richey Edwards, the long-missing guitarist for British political-rock act the

Manic Street Preachers who has been sighted on rare occasions over the past

few years, reportedly has surfaced again. England's New Musical Express

reported that the South Wales Echo newspaper recently ran a story in which a

British barmaid claimed to have seen Edwards, who has been missing since 1995, in a

Canary Island bar. Police reportedly are investigating the story, in which the barmaid and

a patron recognized the troubled Edwards. When the patron called out his name, the

"thin man" sprinted toward the door and disappeared. There have been several reported

sightings of Edwards over the past three years, none of which has led to new information

regarding his mysterious disappearance.
