Lewis Treble has not been seen since he left his home address in Barlby, at around 8am this morning, when he left for work as usual.
His employer contacted Lewis’s parents at 10am as he had not turned up for work, which is out of character.
Lewis is described as being white, 6ft tall, with a slim build and dark hair. When he was last seen, Lewis was wearing black trousers, a light blue striped shirt with a black tie and a black quilted jacket. He was carrying a green holdall.
Inspector Charlotte Bloxham, of North Yorkshire Police, said:
“Lewis, if you see or hear this appeal I urge you to get in touch with your parents straight away, as they are very worried about you. If you would prefer, you can always contact the police. Our only concern is to make sure that you are safe and well.
“If anyone else sees Lewis or can help to locate him, I ask that they get in touch straight away, so that we can check on his welfare.”
The temporary Chief Constable of North Yorkshire Police has given his reaction to the guilty verdict of a Police Constable with the force sexually assaulted women while on duty in Selby.
– Temporary Chief Constable Tim Madgwick
Daniel Fisher has brought disgrace on the Office of Constable.
He abused his position of authority for the sake of his own gratification. This behaviour is completely unacceptable and I congratulate the investigation team who secured the convictions.
On behalf of the force, I commend the victims for having the courage to come forward and report the incidents. We fully understand how challenging this must have been. I hope they can now start to rebuild their lives.
– Temporary Chief Constable Tim Madgwick
I am satisfied that this was an isolated case and the offender was dealt with professionally and robustly, as the people of North Yorkshire and the City of York would expect.
Residents can be reassured that North Yorkshire Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner have the necessary safeguards in place to root out police officers and members of police staff whose conduct or behaviour falls short of the very high standards demanded by the force.
Daniel Fisher will be brought before a disciplinary hearing at the earliest opportunity at which sanctions include dismissal without notice.
A married police constable has been warned he faces jail after he sexually assaulted women on duty in North Yorkshire.
Matthew Daniel Fisher, 37, was found guilty of abusing two women he was supposed to be helping when he served with North Yorkshire Police.
He also admitted two misconduct in a public office charges after having sexual contact in a police van and having sexual contact with a woman who was on a night out.
During Fisher's trial at Hull Crown Court, jurors heard the twice-married officer would meet women while on patrol in the Selby area.
He would flirt with them, often offering his sexual services in their own homes.
Fisher was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault against the two women and one misconduct charge relating to using a police computer to look up details of women.
