Michael Barr

A sex offender who has links to Preston is being sought by Lancashire Police.


Michael Barr, 31, was convicted of rape, burglary and sexual assault at Preston Crown Court in June 2003.

He was released from prison on licence in September but has now been recalled to prison after he breached the terms of his licence by failing to return to his bail address in Fleetwood.

Barr is described as white, 5’8″, of stocky build with short brown hair and possible auburn facial hair.

DS Colin Gaskell from the Dangerous and Sexual Offenders Unit said: “I would urge anyone who has seen Barr or knows where he is to contact us as soon as possible with any information. Similarly, if Barr sees this appeal, I would urge him to make contact with us and hand himself into his nearest police station.”

Anyone with information on his whereabouts can contact police on 101.
