Ormerod has links to Lancashire and Cumbria and may have travelled to the North Yorkshire or Humberside areas.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact police.

Ormerod has been wanted for over a month now and is in breach of his licence requirements. He is believed to have travelled to the Yorkshire area and could be camping.

I would advise anyone with information not to approach him but to contact police immediately.
