Two suspects added to police 'most wanted' list

Lancashire Telegraph: Adam Ryder Adam Ryder

THE details of two Burnley suspects who have gone missing after failing to appear in court have been put on Lancashire police's 'most wanted' website.

Warrants have been issued for the arrest of Adam Ryder and Jacqueline Anne Nicholson, but police have been unable to find them.

And now detectives hope that the website move will finally lead to information about their whereabouts.

The 'most wanted' website has been running for a year and has proved successful in tracking suspects down.

At present there are six people on the site - and four are from Burnley and Pendle.

Ryder and Nicholson have just been added.

Ryder, 20, from Burnley, failed to appear before Burnley magistrates on charges of driving while under the influence of alcohol. Police said that in the past he had used the name Jordan Steven McDougall.

Nicholson, 38, is wanted for an alleged breach of a community order. A Burnley Crown Court judge issued the arrest warrant. Police said she was born in Bolton but was believed to be in the Burnley area.

Already on the list are Sinead Shaw, from Burnley, who did not attend the town's magistrates' court after being charged with a breach of court order, and Scottish-born Lisa Marie Hartley, whose last known address was Nelson, who failed to appear at Burnley Magistrates' Court charged with theft and breaching a court order.

Inspector John Clucas, from Lancashire police, said: "We are keen to trace these people so that they can be brought to justice. We would urge anyone with information on their whereabouts to come forward.

"We are using every method available to us to find these people and the internet is one that I feel is underestimated.

"We hope that the public will make use of the website to keep themselves up to date of the people we are looking for in their area.

"We are aware that the internet can reach a much broader range of people and it is hoped that with so many people looking for these people our chances of catching them is greatly increased."

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
