Detective Constable Mark Turnbull, of Northumbria Police, said: “We are asking anyone who may have seen Matthew Attenborough or has any information about his whereabouts to contact us as soon as possible. Officers are continuing to search for him and are concentrating their attention in the North West of England, with the support of partners, and this activity will continue until he is found.
“We don’t want anyone to get in trouble because of him, so we urge him to come to the nearest police station so we can question him. I would like to remind everyone that this is a criminal offense to harbor a wanted fugitive and which could result in prosecution and possible imprisonment.
“If you have seen him or think you know where he resides, please do the right thing and contact us immediately.”
Attenborough or anyone who has seen him, please call 101 quoting reference 080151C/20. You can also contact Crimestoppers, an independent charity, anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.
