Police say ‘dangerous’ Leon King, who they’ve been searching for over the last week on the North Coast, continues to evade them and they are re-appealing for public assistance to help locate him.

He is wanted over an alleged domestic violence incident.

Police issued a similar a public appeal for a 23-year-old woman police who held concerns for – and who it was believed may have been kidnapped by Mr King last week.

She was subsequently located on Tuesday (June 5).

But Mr King himself has not been seen since he was last spotted on Tuesday May 8 in South Lismore.

He is described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Island appearance, about 190cm tall, of a large build with black hair, a black beard and moustache.

Police have information he may still be in the Northern Rivers region.

Officers are urging anyone that sights Leon King not to approach him, but to instead contact Triple Zero (000) immediately.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
