In both cases the suspect was driving a black VW Polo, or similar car, and is described as being aged in his late forties or fifties, with dark hair which is greying and a tanned complexion.
Detective Inspector Shaun Page said: "If you do recognise him, I urge you to come forward and contact the police immediately.
“If someone is identified and they are not responsible we will be able to quickly eliminate them from our enquiries.”
Detectives in North Yorkshire said they had received two reports of indecent exposure to young girls, which may involve the same man.
