Scarborough’s most wanted - Pictured John Henry

Police hunting a Scarborough criminal are appealing for the public’s help to track them down.

Officers have released  the picture of John Henry Blake who is wanted on prison recall and for failure to attend court.

Extensive police enquiries have yet to trace the men, who are not linked in any way.

Blake, aged 23, from Edgehill Road was released from prison, on licence, in July 2009, after serving 11 months for burglary.

In January 2010 he was recalled into custody for 28 days due to his poor behaviour.

On 4 June 2010 he failed to appear at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court charged with criminal damage and possession of a class B drug. There is a warrant out for his arrest and he is also wanted on prison recall for breaching the terms of his licence.

Inspector Tony Quinn, of Scarborough Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I am appealing to the public to help us find these men. They are persistent offenders and have shown a complete lack of respect for the justice system.

“While neither man is likely to pose a danger to the public, The sooner they are back in custody the better.

“If anyone knows where they are or sees them please call the police or Crimestoppers immediately.”

Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of either of the wanted men is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 0845 60 60 24 7.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted in confidence on 0800 555 111.
