Police are appealing for help from the public to find a Beverley man who failed to turn up at Hull Crown Court last month.

Leonard Christopher Haddlesey, 45, failed to appear at Hull Crown Court on 20 January 2014 after being convicted in relation to a charge of burglary from a non-dwelling in Beverley.

Haddlesey is thought to be in the Anlaby area, he had been living in the Beverley area up to his court appearance in January and also has connections with the Hull area. His current whereabouts are not known.

The warrant that has been issued by the Hull Crown Court for Mr Haddlesey’s arrest and police officers all over England, Wales and Scotland are empowered to arrest him any time of the day and night, wherever he may be at that time, irrespective of who he is with.

Warrant Supervisor, Mike Milner said: “We do not generally feel that such intrusive methods are always necessary but the Police have visited his last known address and been unable to locate Mr Haddlesey.

Mr Haddlesey is still invited to hand himself in and will be taken to court at the earliest opportunity, however his warrant issued by the court has been circulated nationwide for his arrest.”

Mr Haddlesey or anyone who knows where he is should contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. He is thought to have grown a beard since this picture was taken.
