A Thurnscoe man is still wanted by South Yorkshire police on a recall to prison.

Joe Haigh, 26, is wanted after he breached the conditions of his licence and was recalled to prison on July 19.

The public are asked to help in the search, after police failed to trace him despite targeted operations.

Anyone who believes they may know where Haigh is should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously, quoting incident number 981 of 19/07/2013.

The Dearne Safer Neighbourhood Team, based at Goldthorpe, are also keen to trace a nuisance quad bike driver, whose antics have prompted the public to call police on several occasions.

An SNT spokesman said: “We would welcome information to help us identify this person or the quad bike, and tell us where it is from.

“It is a large red agricultural type quad with no number plates, and has been seen to be driven in several dangerous situations.

“These include daylight incidents outside a school, through traffic lights, and on the pedestrian pavement through the town. The description is of a young white male.” Anyone with information should call 101.
