24 Hours Policing Preston: Missing Person, CCTV Footage Of Car Thief & Bike Thief Arrested

The forces have been busy over the last 24 hours as Preston Police have launched two appeals and arrest a suspected bike thief.

A spokesman for Preston Police took to social media three times in the last 24 hours to update the public on these incidents:

Missing Person

Can you help us locate Josh Elder, also known as JJ. Josh is still missing from the Preston area since the 11th May 2019. He was last seen in the LANSDOWN HILL area of Preston.

Josh is a WHITE MALE, 16 years old, around 6ft tall, slim build, ginger coloured hair, last dressed in a Black tracksuit and is believed to frequent the Fulwood, Avenham, Deepdale and City Centre areas of Preston.

Any information to help us locate him would be greatly appreciated.

If you can help with this appeal, see Josh or have any other information regarding his whereabouts, please ring 101 or submit information online via http://socsi.in/zd4gC quoting log LC-20190511-1554.

CCTV Appeal

You might recall my previous appeal about numerous vehicle interferences on Sion Close in Ribbleton which occurred on Friday 24th May at approximately 0230 hours.

We have since received more CCTV video footage and I am asking that members of the public view the footage and any information be passed to myself on 3923@lancashire.pnn.police.uk

Any help will be appreciated.
