Former Met Detective Chief Superintendent Sue Hill needs your help to identify some of the UK's Most Wanted, trace a woman who went missing after pleading guilty to the manslaughter of her husband, help to catch a man who raped a 12-year-old girl in a woodland, and to identify a bank robber who left behind a threatening note.
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT: Last week we appealed for information after two men managed to escape from a prison van in Salford. One of the men, Stevie McMullen (31) has been charged with escaping lawful custody. Two other men, aged 27 and 25, have since been charged with assisting an offender.
However, police are still hunting for 19-year-old Ryan McDonald, who also escaped from the prison van last week. A £10,000 reward was put forward for information leading to the capture of these two men. This full £10,000 reward still stands for anyone who gives information that leads to McDonald's arrest and will be paid when he is back behind bars.
* CONTACT: Members of the public are urged not to approach McDonald due to the potential danger he poses, but to call the police immediately on 0161 856 3324, 999, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
12-YEAR-OLD GIRL IS RAPED AT PLAY PARK: Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a report that a man raped a 12-year-old girl in Bradville, Milton Keynes.
* INCIDENT: The incident happened at around 3pm on or about Saturday 23rd March at woodland at the end of a play park in Harrowden. The victim had been on her own in the play park when a man pulled her to the woodland area, attacked her and then fled. A report of the incident was made to police on 4th May and a scene watch is currently in place to allow a forensic examination of the scene.
* SUSPECT DESCRIPTION: The offender is described as a white man, aged around 45 and of skinny build. He had very short grey/black hair. He spoke with a Scottish accent and was wearing a black leather jacket, blue jeans and black Dr. Martens boots.
* RARE: Investigating officer Det Chief Insp Justin Fletcher said: "We would urge anyone who saw the victim or a man answering this description in the area around that time to contact us as a matter of urgency. We take all allegations of a sexual nature very seriously and understand how difficult it can be for victims to come forward. While this was a very traumatic incident for the victim, it is also very rare. We would like to reassure the community that we are investigating the matter fully and patrols will be in the area to provide extra reassurance."
* CONTACT: Police are appealing for any witnesses to the incident or any information as to the identity of the suspect to call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number 101 quoting URN 589 05/05/13. If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
ROBBER LEAVES THREATENING NOTE BEHIND: At 1.20pm on Friday 15th March 2013, a man walked into the Nationwide building society on High Street East in Wallsend in North Tyneside and handed a note to staff saying that he had a gun and telling them to pass him cash, which they did.
* THE NOTE: The note the man handed over reads: Keep calm or I'll use my gun on you. Keep both hands visible. Don't panic. One hand grab the money on cash drawer and pass to me. Very easy. Don't push alarm or will shoot you.
He left the building with an amount of cash. No gun was seen and no one was injured.
* CCTV IMAGES: DC Keith Howells from Northumbria Police Major Crime Team, said: "Enquiries are still ongoing to trace the man involved and while no-one was injured in the incident it caused great distress to staff and it's important this man is arrested. We've released CCTV images of a man we need to speak to who it's believed can help with the investigation and we are still keen to trace him."
* CONTACT: Anyone with information is asked to call Northumbria Police on the 101 non-emergency number, or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
