Three more suspects have been arrested in connection with allegations of slavery and a third alleged victim has been recovered from one of the sites being searched by detectives.
Officers from Gwent Police confirmed they went to an address in St Brides, Newport, and found a 60-year-old British man. He is being assessed by specialist Red Cross staff.
A spokesman added that men aged 53, 38 and 20 have been arrested on suspicion of slavery and servitude offences.
The arrests came two days after a Polish man was recovered from a farm in nearby Peterstone, Newport.
Earlier this year, a Kidderminster man was found at the same site in Peterstone after going missing 13 years ago while on holiday in the South Wales resort of Porthcawl.
Detective Superintendent Paul Griffiths said: "This is a fast-moving and complicated investigation and we are grateful to the public for the continued assistance and support they have shown so far.
"I'm still appealing for anyone with any information to contact us on 101 quoting log 66 23/09/13.
"Alternatively if anyone has information and would rather not pass this directly to the police then I would urge them to contact Crimestoppers, which is independent of the police and guarantees complete anonymity, on 0800 555 111.
"They don't need to give their name and the police will never know who they are. Any information given would be passed to the team in complete confidence."
