Body found in water at Port of Pembroke in search for missing local man Jai Holroyd

YESTERDAY (Sunday April 16), police officers and Coastguard rescue teams were called to the Port of Pembroke in connection with the search for a missing local man named Jai. 

A witness reported a lot of activity in the area, and specialist officers and a police scientific support unit were also seen at the scene. 

Dyfed-Powys Police continued to appeal for information to help find Jai, who was reported missing from the Pembroke Dock area. 

They described him as in his early 40s, 5ft 8ins, bald, slim, and believed to be wearing grey work trousers with a number of black pockets and a grey Superdry hoodie.

However, following reports of the multi-agency operation, the police have now confirmed that a body was found in the water at Pembroke port at 11am on Sunday, April 16. 

The family of Jai Holroyd has been informed of the development, although formal identification has not yet taken place.

The death is being treated as unexplained, and HM Coroner has been informed. The police and specially trained officers are providing support to Jai’s family.

Angle Lifeboat crew was paged at 11:08am to assist with the incident, and the RNLI confirmed that the lifeboat was launched and collected a police officer from the port authority jetty before proceeding up the Haven.

The Y boat was deployed to assist with the incident, and the lifeboat provided assistance on the scene for approximately two hours before being released to return to station. 

The thoughts of the RNLI are with the casualty’s family and friends at this difficult time.
