A huge search has been launched for the ex-BBC Radio Cymru editor, who disappeared without his medication.
BBC newsreader Huw today shared his concerns on Twitter for his former colleague.
He said: “Please check CCTV from doorbells and security cameras in Cardiff.”
Huw signed off the message “Diolch yn Fawr” – Welsh for thank you very much.
Fellow BBC colleague Mark Hutchings added: “Amazing public response today in searching for Aled.
“Sadly no leads yet but we owe it to his family – and him – to keep the spotlight on his disappearance.
“If you have any relevant CCTV, doorbell footage in #Pontcanna #Canton, please contact police. Diolch”.
Aled had been for a meal with his wife in Pontcanna in Cardiff on the night he vanished.
He was last seen at around 11.30pm at home before he went for a late-night walk.
Aled is around 6ft tall and was last seen wearing a green puffer jacket, a dark green deer-hunter hat and glasses.
His son Gruffudd Glyn said his disappearance was out of character and the family was “incredibly concerned”.
He explained his dad has a curvature of the spine and is on medication for a lung condition, which means he gets tired easily.
Gruffudd added: “If you’re walking and you have a dog and you go on your usual path, maybe just go off that beaten track a little bit.
“Keep yourself safe as well as you’re doing that. Of course don’t put yourself at risk, but look to see if maybe you know he’s resting somewhere.
“Check anywhere because if we all do this together we will find out and that’s all we want is some answers or to develop this case further.
“If you see him approach with care, and call 999 immediately.”
Gruffudd also thanked those who have been out searching for his dad.
In a direct message to Aled, he said: “We all love you so much. And we just can’t wait to see you again. Come home.
“We’ve got tickets to watch Wales play in the Euro qualifiers and I can’t wait to be singing the anthem with you.
“We love you so much. Please come home.”
