David McKenzie, 42, originally from Boston, Lincolnshire, has been recalled to prison by the Ministry of Justice after failing to reside at an approved address in Scarborough and failing to keep appointments with the Probation Service.

He was released on licence from HM Prison Humber on Friday 22 January 2016 after serving part of three-year prison sentence for a house burglary in Bridlington committed in August 2014.

McKenzie has links across England and Scotland and is likely to be using public transport to move from place to place. He is also known to break into caravans that are not in use, therefore owners are advised to carry out checks and report anything suspicious.
