Police appeal for sightings of offenders

Police appeal for sightings of offenders

Police are appealing for sightings or information on two high-risk offenders who have absconded from a Christchurch address in breach of their parole conditions.

Ivan Andrew Campbell, aged 46, absconded from the Salisbury Foundation early yesterday morning [Wednesday 7 November].

He is believed to be in the company of 18-year old Jaydon Galland who has also absconded from the address.

Campbell has multiple convictions for sexual and other offences and is currently on Parole after an 11-year prison term.

Police say both are deemed as high-risk offenders and although there is no indication of a specific threat to any individuals, they should not be approached by the public.

The two men are believed to have links to Christchurch, Ashburton and the West Coast, and may have left the Christchurch area.

Campbell is described as a Caucasian, 177cm (approx 5ft 10in) tall, and of medium-thin build. He has extensive tattoos on his face, neck, and arms.

Galland is described as Caucasian, 177cm (approx 5ft 10in) tall, of medium build.

Any sightings of the men should be reported urgently to Police by phoning 111, or Christchurch police on (03) 3637400.
