Police are appealing for help in tracing a wanted Scarborough woman and Whitby man.

Elizabeth Hanson, 38 of Columbus Ravine, and Shaun Brian Chapman, 40, of St Hilda’s Terrace in Whitby, are wanted for failing to answer police bail on December 14.

They were due to answer bail after being arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation in November.

Officers believe Chapman and Hanson are either in the Whitby area or have travelled to Cleveland.

Chapman is described as white, 5ft 10in tall, with brown hair, brown eyes and a medium build.

Hanson is described as white, around 5ft 7in tall, with fair hair, brown eyes and a medium build.

Anyone who can help officers is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1, and pass information to the Force Control Room.
