De­tec­tives ap­peal over wanted sex of­fender

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

DE­TEC­TIVES are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion to find a wanted sex of­fender.

Daniel Farmer was jailed in 2012 for in­cit­ing a girl to en­gage in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity and placed on the Sex Of­fend­ers’ Reg­is­ter. Fol­low­ing a sep­a­rate in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the 23-yearold was charged and con­victed of as­sault.

He was re­leased to an ad­dress in Lydia Street, Ac­cring­ton, but went miss­ing on Mon­day, Novem­ber 6, breach­ing his no­ti­fi­ca­tion re­quire­ments.

For­merly of Hazel­bot­tom Road, Crump­sall, Manch­ester, Farmer is wanted by po­lice on re­call to prison.

De­tec­tives are ad­vis­ing any­one who sees Farmer not to ap­proach him, but to in­stead con­tact po­lice.

Det Sgt Steve Munro, of Lan­cashire Po­lice, said: “Farmer has been wanted for sev­eral days now and is in breach of his no­ti­fi­ca­tion re­quire­ments.

“He has strong links to the Manch­ester area and we be­lieve he is likely to be some­where in the city.

“I would ad­vise any­one with in­for­ma­tion about Farmer’s lo­ca­tion to con­tact po­lice im­me­di­ately.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can con­tact po­lice on 101 quot­ing log ref­er­ence 0019 of Novem­ber 7.

Al­ter­na­tively, in­de­pen­dent char­ity Crimestop­pers can be con­tacted on 0800 555 111 or on­line at crimestop­pers-uk.org.
