Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace a man wanted on recall to prison.
David Glasgow, 44, was recently released from prison and has failed to comply with strict conditions imposed by the probation service which limited his movements after his release.
Glasgow was jailed in December 1998 for murdering an acquaintance – Nicholas Dayman (45) – in Alum Rock, Birmingham. The argument between the two started because Glasgow had objected to Dayman being paid money by someone who wanted to have sex with Dayman’s wife, while he (Dayman) watched.
Glasgow killed Daymon by striking him several times with a spade, He then tried to set the body alight.
Since his disappearance on Friday 8 March this year, police have been hunting for David Glasgow and have searched a number of homes across the West Midlands.
PC Natalie Hodgkiss, from West Midlands Police’s Offender Management Team, said: “We have been checking addresses and have put alerts across the country in a bid to locate Mr Glasgow.
“It is known to frequent the Birmingham area and has links to Scarborough and Worcester.
“We would urge anyone who knows of his whereabouts to call us.”
People can report any information to police by calling 101. Alternatively people can leave information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers the independent charity on 0800 555 111.
