Police are appealing for help to trace a man who is wanted on prison recall.

Ryan Gordon (24) was jailed for 16 months at Burnley Crown Court in January for a burglary at an address in Baxenden in September 2013. He was released in November 2014 but has since breached the terms of his licence.

He is described as white, 5ft. 8in. tall, of stocky build with light brown short hair and green eyes. He has links to the Accrington, Rishton and Rossendale areas.

PS Craig Leech, of Burnley Police, said: “We are keen to trace Gordon and I would ask the public to remain vigilant and report any sightings of him to the police. If anybody has seen him or knows of his current whereabouts I would urge them to contact us.”

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
