Concerns are growing over the safety of a 22-year-old rugby player who went missing after a night out.

Brooke Morris, who plays for Nelson rugby club, hasn't been seen since getting a taxi home from Trelewis, Merthyr Tydfil on Saturday evening.

More than 100 people have joined the search for her after her rugby club appealed for volunteers. Mountain rescue teams have also been mobilised.

Police said they were growing "increasingly concerned" for Ms Morris, last seen at about 02:30 wearing a long-sleeved red top and jeans. Her family are also "extremely worried". 

Nelson rugby club said on their Facebook page: "We will co-ordinate a search of a specific terrain. You must be physically fit, have sound local knowledge of the area and be wearing appropriate clothing.

"The club will remain open as a central community coordination point until further notice."

Sherelle Jago, a local councillor, has said: "Everyone is helping out and doing all they can and all they want in return is to see Brooke home safe and sound where she belongs."
