Police are appealing for help to find a missing sex offender with links to Chorley.

Jason George Gleave, who is also known as Jason Cunliffe, is wanted for allegedly failing to attend his bail address in Blackburn and breaching his notification requirements by not informing police of his current address.

The 33-year-old was convicted in July 2013 for taking a 14-year-old girl without lawful authority and sexually assaulting her.

DC Yusuf Lorgat, from the East Dangerous And Sexual Offenders Unit, said: “We take any breach of notification requirements very seriously and we are still trying to trace Gleave. If anyone has any information on where he might be, I would urge them to contact us. I would also urge Jason himself, if he sees this appeal, to hand himself in to the police.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
