A Boxted man wanted in connection with hundreds of thousands of pounds of fraud against 20 victims will appear tonight on Crimewatch.

The 56-year-old, who used the alias Alan Mitchell, failed to answer police bail last year and, despite extensive enquiries by officers, he has not been located.

It is thought he may have changed his name and could now be anywhere in the country, with possible sightings in Manchester and London.

Smith is described as white, around 5ft 8ins – 5ft 9ins tall, of medium to stocky build, with a bald head.

He was publicised as wanted by Suffolk Police in February 2015.

His photograph, and alias Alan Mitchell, will be featured on the BBC programme in a bid to track him down.

It is hoped the additional publicity may lead to new information that may help locate him.
