Police are appealing for information and urging Poulton residents to check all outbuildings, as Jason has previously stayed in garages and sheds.

Det Chief Insp Pauline Stables, of Lancashire Police’s Force Major Investigation Team, said: “This is a significant development in our search for Jason and I am appealing to people in the Poulton area for any information which might assist with our enquiries.

“I’m particularly keen for residents to check garages, sheds and outbuildings. We know Jason has previously slept rough and it might be he is staying in the area.

“We remain very concerned about his disappearance. Every day which goes by without finding Jason is more and more worrying. He has been missing for more than a month now and while we have conducted numerous enquiries to find him, he has yet to be located.
