Boss of missing Chris hoping he'll be found
COLLEAGUES of a Burry Port man who disappeared just days before Christmas are hoping for his safe return.
Chris Baker (left), 29, unexpectedly ran off on his way to work on Thursday, December 20, and has not been seen since.
The former Glan y Mor pupil had moved to York six months ago with his wife Megan and was working as an accountant for the City Healthcare Partnership at Hull Royal Infirmary.
Testimony was paid to Mr Baker's character this week by his boss Andrew Burnell, who described him as a "valuable and well-liked member of the corporate team".

He added that all at the health care partnership were shocked to learn of his disappearance.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time and we will continue to hope for his safe return," he said.
Mr Baker was seen to gesture to a woman in the car behind him as he drove to work before jumping over a wall of Skeldergate Bridge, on the banks of the River Ouse, in York city centre.
Humberside Police's marine unit has carried out a sonar search of the River Ouse but has been delayed from making an underwater search due to fast-flowing water. The search is scheduled for next Monday or Tuesday.
Mr Baker is described as white, around 5ft 9in tall, of slim build and with curly, dark brown hair.
He was wearing a striped work shirt when he was last seen.
Police said Mr Baker's disappearance was a complete mystery and have pledged not to give up the search for him.
