Alternatively, witnesses can call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. 

Police regularly put out wanted appeals to help them find suspects or other people who are wanted on recall to prison or in some cases for missing court appearances.

But the force urges anyone who sees a wanted person not to approach them and instead to contact police as soon as it is safe to do so.
