Police on the hunt for a missing man from Poole are appealing for public help to trace him

Police searching for a 29-year-old man from Poole are appealing for help from the public in tracing him.

Police said Lee Ivan James Hogben, originally from Poole, has breached his licence conditions and been recalled to prison.

He is described as a white man around six feet tall, of broad build and has short cropped brown hair which is gelled in a side parting.

He was last seen wearing a dark blue sports type jacket, dark trousers and carrying a black sports bag.

It’s believed he is likely to be in the Poole area.

Officers are advising members of the public not to approach Hogben if they see him. They should call the police immediately on 999.

Detective Inspector Neil Phillips, from Dorset Police’s Offender Management Unit, said: “Officers are continuing to search for Lee Hogben and we are following positive lines of enquiry.

“We need to trace him urgently and I would encourage any member of the public to contact the police immediately if they see him.

“He was released from prison on Friday 11 January 2013 with licence conditions, one of which was to reside in the Somerset area.

“However, Hogben failed to attend this address, and has subsequently been recalled to prison.

“Hogben should not be approached under any circumstance if seen as he is considered dangerous.”

Anyone who sees Lee Hogben should dial 999 immediately, and anyone with information should call the non-emergency number 101.
