Detectives have carried out extensive enquiries to trace Azam, who is 35 and is believed to be living in the Keighley area.  

He has links to Bradford and Halifax, as well as Lancashire and Manchester.  

He is described as Asian, about 6ft 2ins tall, of broad build with brown eyes and short black hair and sometimes wears glasses.  

Police say he is not believed to pose a risk to the general public, but anyone who sees him is advised not to approach him and call police on 101.
