The parents of long-missing Manic Street Preachers guitarist Richey
Edwards are going to the Canary Islands following reports that Edwards was seen
there, according to the British weekly New Musical Express. The NME,
citing Welsh TV reports, said Edwards, who has been missing since 1995, was spotted in
a bar on the island of Fuerteventura, but fled upon being recognized. Numerous
sightings of the guitarist over the years have proved to be hoaxes or dead ends.
