As you probably know Richey Edwards from Manic Street
Preachers is still missing. In fact, on February 1 it will be exactly a year
from when he was due to fly to these shores with James Dean Bradfield. Since
that day there has been neither hide nor hair of him, and the only clue to his
whereabouts was his deserted car left near Severn Bridge in London. As you can
imagine, the Edwards' family have been besides themselves, and on December 22,
Richey's sister Rachel appeared on the UK TV program "Missing At Christmas,"
appealing to her brother to get in touch with her. Here's what she said: "I've
got so many fond memories of him. Being my brother and being so close in age,
I've got so many memories. My brother is five feet eight inches tall, of very
slim build. Naturally his hair is dark brown, but he had actually shaved it at
the time of his disappearance. He's got several tattoos, one of which is a rose
which bears the words 'Useless Generation.' He's got very pale skin and dark
brown eyes. If you are listening, Richard, make contact in whichever way you
can. We're missing you. We think about you every Day. No one hates you for
disappearing. We realize that coming back may be difficult, or even impossible
for you. But if you're in trouble we only want to help you in any way we can.
We won't make any demands of you. If you've got a new life and you don't want
us in it, then please try to get that message across to you."
