He is originally from Dublin, Ireland and has connections to Blackpool and Preston.

Gavin was jailed for two years in June 2011 for an offence of robbery.

He is described as a white male, 5ft 6in tall, with short dark hair and an Irish accent.

Det Sgt Simon Gray, of Blackpool Police, said: “We need to trace Gavin and return him to prison as a priority. There is the potential that he poses a risk to certain individuals that he knows, although not to wider members of the public.

“I would appeal to anyone who knows where he is or who recognises him to contact us as a matter of urgency.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
