POLICE are appealing for the public's help to find a wanted woman.

Kelly Louise Bignell, 36, from Bournemouth has breached the terms of her licence.

She was released from prison on Monday, September 11, after serving part of a 16-month sentence for assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

A recall notice was issued later the same day after Bignell breached the terms of her licence.

She is known to frequent the Boscombe area and is described as white, of slim build with blonde hair.

Detective Sergeant Paul Auger, of Dorset Police, said: “We are making a number of ongoing enquiries to locate Bignell and I am releasing her image in the hope that someone will know of her whereabouts.

“While we have no information to suggest that she presents a direct risk to members of the public, I would urge anyone who sees Bignell not to approach her but to immediately contact Dorset Police on 999.”

If you see Kelly Bignell you should dial 999 immediately. Anyone else with other information should call 101, quoting occurrence number 55170141815 or Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.
