 We are trying to trace registered sex offender Jack Tyhurst, 19, who is wanted for recall to prison after failing to attend probation appointments and not keeping in contact with the police as per his licence conditions.

Tyhurst was originally sentenced to 13 months imprisonment in 2011 for a sexual assault and attempted rape against two women.
