Macclesfield Express - - NOSTALGIA - RHI­AN­NON MCDOWALL

CRIMESTOP­PERS is of­fer­ing a £2,000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to an al­leged se­ri­ous sex­ual of­fence.

The char­ity has is­sued the ap­peal af­ter Neil Jack­son, who has con­nec­tions with Mac­cles­field, was be­lieved to be spot­ted in Ch­ester.

Der­byshire Po­lice want to speak to Mr Jack­son, 62, who they have been look­ing for since 2001, about an al­le­ga­tion made that year that a young girl was as­saulted in Bux­ton.

It is be­lieved a man match­ing Mr Jack­son’s de­scrip­tion was seen in East­gate, Ch­ester, on the af­ter­noon of Sun­day, Novem­ber 15.

He looked sim­i­lar to Mr Jack­son’s pass­port photo, which is sev­eral years old, and wore a beanie or flat hat.

Mr Jack­son has a num­ber of tat­toos on his left arm and back, in­clud­ing his own name.

He also has con­nec- tions to Spain, es­pe­cially Ali­cante.

Gary Mur­ray, re­gional man­ager for Crimestop­pers, said: “There are peo­ple out there who know where he is and I would urge you to con­tact Crimestop­pers anony­mously through our 0800 555 111 num­ber or anony­mous on­line form at www. crimestop­pers-uk.org.

“We don’t take per­sonal in­for­ma­tion, we don’t record calls and we can’t trace calls or in­for­ma­tion given on­line. No-one will ever know you con­tacted us.”
