Police are calling for public help in trying to find a 27-year-old man wanted for domestic-violence offences in NSW.

Sam Webb is wanted in relation to five outstanding arrest warrants in NSW for domestic violence-related offences.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 165cm tall, of slim build, with a fair complexion, brown hair, brown eyes and no facial hair.

Police say Webb has a distinctive tattoo of a skull with a cross in the middle of it on his left forearm.

He was last seen in Broken Hill in early February and police believe he may have been seeking handyman work on farms in the state, or made his way to the Northern Territory.

Anyone who sees Webb is urged not to approach him, but to call Triple Zero (000) immediately.
