The search is on for a man wanted for recall to prison.

20-year-old Joshua Lee Sargent has breached the terms of his release licence by not living at a specific address.

In April 2011 hew was given a three year jail sentence for a robbery in Ripon in March 2011.

He is white, 5ft 11in tall with a medium build, blond hair and a spotty complexion.

Officers have already made a number of visits to addresses where Sargent is known to have links. Calls to these, and other properties we believe he may be using, will continue until he has been returned to prison to complete the sentence he received for a very serious offence offence.

It is wholly unacceptable that Sargent remains at liberty. He needs to face the consequences of his actions.

“If you know where Sargent is you should contact the police immediate
