Police have launched a nation-wide appeal to trace a convicted burglar ‘with links across England and Scotland’ who has been recalled to prison by the Ministry of Justice.

David McKenzie, 42, originally from Boston, has been has breached his prison release licence after failing to reside at an approved address in Scarborough and failing to keep appointments with the Probation Service.

North Yorkshire Police have made the appeal and a statament said he was released on licence from HM Prison Humber on Friday, January 22, 2016, after serving part of three-year prison sentence for a house burglary in Bridlington in August 2014.

The force says McKenzie has links across England and Scotland and is likely to be using public transport to move from place to place.

He is also known to break into caravans that are not in use, therefore owners are advised to carry out checks and report anything suspicious.

McKenzie is described as white, 5ft 10in tall, medium build, with short grey hair that is balding on the top and a beard. He speaks with a Midlands accent.

Anyone with information should call North Yorkshire Police on police non-emergency number 101, select option 1, and speak to the Force Control Room.

Report crime anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 quoting reference number 12160014875.
