Police appeal to find wanted man with links to Harrogate

Police are asking for the public’s help to find a man wanted for recall to prison.

Philip John Watson, 27, was released from HMP Hull on 16 March 2018, having been jailed for robbery and racially/religiously aggravated criminal damage.

He has since breached the terms of his release licence, due to his poor behaviour – and the Prison and Probation Service recalled him to prison on 6 April 2018.

Watson has links to Harrogate, and is believed to be in Sheffield.

Officers from North Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Police are carrying out extensive enquiries to locate Watson, but he remains at large.

Anyone who has seen Watson, or knows of his current whereabouts, is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, and pass information to the Force Control Room. If you have an immediate sighting of him, please call 999.

Please quote reference 12180059952 when passing information.
