About six weeks ago a student from Cardiff posted a message saying she thought she had seen James walking along a street near the university, but nothing more came from the sighting.
James lived in Caldicot with his father Jeff, mother Catherine and sister Helen.

'It was discovered that he had disappeared on the Monday evening, and I was alerted at about 7pm that evening. He and the rest of the party were due home on the Tuesday.
'There was nothing wrong in James's life.
'The world was his oyster, and he gave no sign at all of being depressed.
'The only thing that made him unhappy was playing a bad game of golf. …
