Daniel Pullman, 23, is wanted for recall to prison as he has failed to comply with the terms of his release licence.

He was sentenced to four years imprisonment following the aggravated theft of a vehicle in York, in November 2012. He was released from prison on Monday 25 March 2014.

Pullman is described as white, 6ft 2in tall, with a broad build and fair hair.

Although it is not known where Pullman is, officers believe he is in the York area.

Detective Inspector Dave Kirby, of York CID, said: “Daniel, if you see or hear this appeal, I strongly advise you to hand yourself in at the nearest police station immediately. This is not something which will go away. We will not stop looking for you until you are back in custody.

“By delaying this outcome, you are only delaying the inevitable and making matters worse for yourself. I am also asking anyone who knows where Daniel Pullman is to contact the police straight away.”

Body found in River Ouse identified as missing soldier

Tyler Pearson, 18

North Yorkshire Police have confirmed that the body found in the River Ouse near Skeldergate Bridge yesterday has been identified as missing 18-year-old, Tyler Pearson

The soldier was last seen entering the River Ouse in the early hours of Thursday 3 April 2014.

Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, said:

“My heart goes out to Tyler’s family, and I know the police will offer all the help and support the family need at this very difficult time.

“The recent spate of fatalities highlights the importance of staying safe near York’s rivers, particularly when alcohol has been consumed. Last month’s river safety summit concluded that the priority needs to be on prevention as well as response.

"Work is currently underway with groups across York and families of recent river victims to make some short films to highlight the dangers of the river. In the longer term we will devise a sustained and powerful campaign to help prevent more lives being needlessly cut short.

"In addition to this, I am keen to facilitate vulnerability training, so those working in York’s night-time economy know who they can go to and what they can do to help keep vulnerable people safe."
