Police are appealing for information about the whereabouts of a 19-year old Eastbourne man who is wanted for recall to prison.

Thomas Fear has breached his prison release licence conditions after failing to stay at an approved bail hostel in Brighton following his release from prison for a conviction of robbery in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Fear is medium build, 5’11” with short blond hair and a spotty complexion.

PC Dan Cloake said, “Fear was convicted of committing a street robbery in Newcastle with another man and was sentenced to prison.

“He has recently been released from prison on licence and has failed to adhere to the strict conditions imposed on him.

“We wish to locate him at the request of the Probation Service in order to send him back to prison.

“He is local to Eastbourne but may be in the Brighton area.

“Fear does not pose a specific threat to the general public, but if seen, I ask that the police are called and that he is not approached.

“I am confident that with the help of local people in Sussex, Fear will be found soon and returned to prison.”

Anyone who has any information on his whereabouts is asked contact police via 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting serial 1846 of October 24. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 500 111.
