Blackpool sex offender on the run

Police are appealing for information about a wanted man after he breached his sex offender notification requirements. 

Ryan Humpage, 22, absconded from a property in Lydia Street, Accrington, on May 8 and has failed to register his new address.

Humpage was sentenced to 18 months in prison in July 2015 for sexual activity with a child in Blackpool.

He is described as white, tall and of slim build with brown hair. He has tattoos including a skull wearing a hat and smoking on his left arm.

Humpage is believed to have travelled to the Manchester city centre area. He has links to Blackpool and is believed to be wanting to travel to Northern Ireland.

Det Con Nick Spencer, of Lancashire Police, said: “Humpage is wanted by police after breaching his notification requirements.

“Enquiries to locate him are on-going and it is believed he has travelled to the Manchester city centre area.

“I would urge anyone who has seen him, or knows where he is, to contact police immediately.”
