Merseyside Police is appealing for the public’s help to trace a 51-year-old man with Scarborough links who is wanted on recall to prison.

Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who can help trace John Higginson, 51, of no fixed abode, who is wanted on recall to prison for breaching his licence conditions.

Officers also want to speak to Mr Higginson as part of investigations into a fraud offence in North Wales, and theft offences in Wallasey and Chester.

Extensive enquiries have been made by officers to progress the investigation and they are now asking for the public’s help in tracing Mr Higginson so they can speak to him as part of their enquiries.

Higginson is described as being white, 5ft 10in tall, and of large build. He has dark brown hair which is balding on top, and blue eyes.

He is known to have links to the Scarborough area in North Yorkshire and Birkenhead.

Officers would ask Mr Higginson, or anyone who knows of his whereabouts, to contact officers on 0151 777 2019 or via the non-emergency 101 number. Information can also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
