Independent charity Crimestoppers has offered the reward to anyone who passes intelligence to them anonymously which leads to arrest of 37-year-old Christopher Lee Ball.

Ball, who also goes by the name of Chrissy, is wanted on prison recall and is actively evading arrest.

Detective Inspector Lee Underwood, of Northumbria Police, urged Ball to turn himself in: “We are actively searching for Ball and believe there will be people in the community who have seen him,” he said.

“Crimestoppers have now offered a reward of up to £1,000 for anybody who passes on crucial information that leads to his swift arrest, and I’d encourage anybody who does know anything to contact them direct.

“We do not want anybody to get into trouble on Ball’s account and would like to remind everyone that it is a criminal offence to harbour a wanted fugitive. That offence could lead to a potential jail term.
