Lewis was sentenced to two years and four months’ in prison in March 2013 after being convicted of burglary.

He was released from prison in August 2014 but is suspected of committing a further offence and must return to custody.

Police believe Lewis is in the Harrogate area as he has links to the town centre.

Det Sgt Kevin Kelly of Harrogate CID said: “Mr Lewis, if you see or hear this appeal, my advice is simple - hand yourself in.

“By remaining at large you are only making the inevitable outcome worse for yourself and prolonging your stay in prison when we catch up with you.

“I am asking members of the public who see Lewis to contact the police straight away.

“Officers have already visited addresses in the Harrogate area which we know Lewis has links to and the efforts to locate him will continue until he is back in custody.

“Lewis’ associates should know that harbouring an offender is a criminal offence and you face prison yourself if you are helping him to evade the police.”

Lewis is described as white, 5ft 11in tall, with a skinny build and dark brown, balding hair.

Anyone who sees Kevin Lewis or knows where he is should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 - select option one and pass any information to the force control room.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
