He is believed to still be in Scarborough and officers have been checking addresses in the area in an effort to locate him.

The public are being urged to keep an eye out for Dougan and report sightings of anyone matching his description.

Chief Inspector Mark Grange, of Scarborough Police, said: "Paul Dougan is well aware that we are looking for him and it is only a matter of time before we catch up with him."
