A brazen fugitive is taunting police as they continue a manhunt for him by changing his Facebook profile to depict himself as Where’s Wally and declaring he is a “hide and seek champion”.
Police brought in a helicopter and sniffer dogs as they scoured the market town of Leyburn, North Yorks, throughout the weekend in a search for JJ McMenamin.
But the 30-year-old, who describes himself as a jockey, told his Facebook friends he was close enough to watch the search take place on Saturday afternoon.
Around a dozen police officers were called in to search on foot after it is understood McMenamin breached his bail conditions by failing to attend court.

On the Where’s Wally image, Wally’s face was replaced with a picture of the wanted man’s own head and the image was accompanied with the words “Dude… I’m right here.”
In one post he said: “Buddy if they really new how close they are too me, not a scooby do where I am. Even got sniffer dogs out and I’m still sat giggling” [sic].
