POLICE are appealing for help in tracing a man wanted in connection with historic child sex offences.

Jeffrey Maclagan, 64, has been wanted since February 2012 for failing to appear at court after being charged with four counts of gross indecency with a child. The offences occurred in the 1970s in West Cumbria.

An appeal for information on Maclagan’s whereabouts was broadcast on the BBC’s Crimewatch Roadshow today (March 12). He has links to Cumbria, Kent and London.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cumbria Police on 101.
