“I would also like to remind the public that harbouring him could also be a criminal offence. It is vital that, if you know where he is or have information on where he is, you get in touch either directly through the police or anonymously via Crimestoppers.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101, or via Bedfordshire Police’s online reporting tool, quoting Operation Montford.
