Warwickshire police are appealing for help from builders merchants nationwide in their hunt for a man wanted on suspicion of sexually abusing children.
Brian Hughes, 63, is a bricklayer from Rugby, last heard of working as a block paver, and is suspected of a number of abuses over a 40 year period, including the rape of a young girl he had groomed over a seven year period.
Police believe he may be working elsewhere in the country, living in a family environment and grooming other children. Police investigator Peter Herring said: “This man is a danger to the community and needs to be found. It is essential we trace him and I urge anyone who believes they know him or where he is to call the police.”
Hughes’s last description is slim, with blue eyes and short brown hair. He smokes roll-ups, reads The Sun, is taking tablets for blood pressure and has enjoyed coarse fishing in the past.
Herring said: “If any of this description rings a bell with someone please call us on 01926 415000.”
