Violent offender Alan Jordan is wanted for emergency recall to prison and has links to Derbyshire.

It comes after various addresses across Sunderland have been searched in a bid to locate the 29-year-old, who is allegedly aware that he is wanted.

The independent charity is supporting the investigation by offering money for information the charity exclusively receives – either at Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling freephone 0800 555 111 – that leads to finding Jordan.

North East Regional Manager at the Crimestoppers Ruth McNee said: “We are appealing to anyone with information on where Alan Jordan might be to do the right thing and to speak to our charity 100% anonymously.

"Alan is wanted for serious offences and your information may take a violent offender off the streets.

"If you think you know where he is, or think you might have seen him, please come forward and tell us what you know, however small you think the information is.

"Please remember that Crimestoppers, as an independent charity, keeps its promise of 100% anonymity to more than a thousand people who trust us with their crime information every single day.

“Share what you know by calling our UK Contact Centre on freephone 0800 555 111, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week or use our website’s simple and secure anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

"No one will ever know you contacted us.

"We cannot trace your call or track your IP address and we never ask for or record any personal information.”

Information passed directly to police will not qualify for the reward and the informant will only receive up to £1,000 for information passed to Crimestoppers’ via the 0800 555 111 number or the untraceable anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
