Manhunt appeal renewed for on-the-run stalker with New Forest links

John Henry Bond is wanted by police

POLICE have renewed their appeal for help to apprehend a man wanted in connection with serious harassment and stalking offences who has links with Ringwood.


John Henry Bond (63) has been on the run since February, when he failed to appear in court for sentencing.

He had pleaded guilty to bombarding his former partner with a string of threatening text messages and phone calls.

As reported in the A&T, a warrant for Bond’s arrest has been issued by Sussex Police, which advised that he has connections to Ringwood as well as Poole, Bournemouth, Ferndown, Wimborne and Weymouth.

He is also believed to have links with Salisbury in Wiltshire, and East and West Sussex.

People are being urged to come forward if they see Bond or know where he could be.

Anyone with information should contact officers on 101 – or 999 in an emergency – quoting reference number 1285 of 13/06.

Crimestoppers can also be called on 0800 555 111.
