A £1000 reward is being offered for information on the location of a violent offender who belongs in prison and is believed to have a connection to Scotland.

Alan Jordan breached the terms of his licence and a wide-ranging search for him has been launched believing he has connections to the Edinburgh, Derbyshire and Manchester areas.

Northumbria Police have searched numerous addresses hunting for the 29-year-old, who is believed to be avoiding officers and aware he is wanted.

After police issued an appeal on January 15, on Friday independent charity Crimestoppers offered a reward of up to £1000 for knowledge of Jordan’s whereabouts.
