Merseyside Police is appealing for the public’s help in tracing a man who was convicted earlier this year of possessing a knife in public.

Terence Riley, who also goes under the name Terence Cubbin, was jailed for 14 months in February this year for being in possession of the weapon when he was confronted by a security guard outside the Asda supermarket in Bootle.

The 30-year-old was released from prison earlier this year to serve the rest of the sentence on licence under strict conditions but breached them and was recalled to HMP Liverpool in June.

However Riley remains outstanding, despite extensive efforts by the police to find him, and officers are appealing for the public’s help in finding him so that he can be returned to custody.

Riley is from Bootle but alsp has links to Walton in Liverpool and both Bournemouth and Weymouth. 

Anyone who knows where Terence Riley is or thinks they have seen him recently is asked to call the prison recall team  at Wavertree police station on 0151 777 5466 or leave information anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
