Man on child sex charges re­mains on the run from law

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

A for­mer Ban­gor City FC press of­fi­cer who went on the run af­ter be­ing charged with child sex of­fences re­mains at large one year on.

David Daniel Hayes, 38, of Llan­wrst, faces charges of rap­ing a child and com­mit­ting other sex of­fences against chil­dren on Anglesey,

He last ap­peared in court on Novem­ber 24 last year and was bailed to at­tend Mold Crown Court on De­cem­ber 18 where he was ex­pected to en­ter a plea.

How­ever, Hayes did not show up at court and po­lice have so far failed to track him down. North Wales Po­lice Chief In­spec­tor Andrew Wil­liams said of­fi­cers con­tinue in their ef­forts to trace Hayes and are ap­peal­ing for help from the pub­lic. He said: “We are ur­rently work­ing with a num­ber of part­ner agen­cies in an ef­fort to trace his cur­rent where­abouts. “In the mean­time I would en­cour­age any­one with any in­for­ma­tion in this re­gard to call North Wales Po­lice.” When Hayes ini­tially dis­ap­peared a spokesman for the po­lice pre­vi­ously said that all forces through­out the United King­dom were no­ti­fied about the out­stand­ing war­rant on Hayes.

Hayes has pre­vi­ously lived in Gwynedd and Anglesey.

Po­lice be­lieve he may have fled abroad.

North Wales Po­lice and the Crown Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice (CPS) were crit­i­cised last year over the way they han­dled Hayes’ case.

At Hayes’ first court ap­pear­ance back in Novem­ber, Judge Rhys Row­lands slammed the CPS and the po­lice for fail­ing to have the al­le­ga­tions brought to trial within three months of them be­ing made.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call North Wales Po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.”
