TWO men have been re-arrested on suspicion of the murder of Barnsley man Richard Dyson.

The pair, aged 69 and 70, were originally arrested in March 2021 of the same offence.

Officers re-arrested them on Wednesday, as detectives continue to analyse existing evidence as part of the investigation.

Dyson went missing on November 17 2019 and, despite numerous appeals from South Yorkshire Police, his whereabouts still remain unknown.

CCTV footage – which was taken the day before Richard’s disappearance – shows him pulling up to a petrol station on Sheffield Road, Birdwell, at around 10.30pm.

He exits his vehicle – with the registration T321 POW – before entering the petrol station’s shop.

He then returns to his car, opens the bonnet and checks something before driving away.

However, he was last seen on November 17 at 11pm, walking towards the A6135 Sheffield Road in Hoyland, close to Parkside Cottage near to where he had been staying

Richard is described as about 5ft 10in tall with short grey hair and was wearing a navy Kappa jacket with white stitching.

A police spokesperson said: “The investigation in to Richard’s disappearance continues and we remain keen to hear from anyone with any information which could assist us, no matter how insignificant it may seem.

“You can contact us via our new online live chat, our online portal or by calling 101.

“Please quote incident number 459 of November 25, 2019 when you get in touch.”
