Detectives hunting a South Yorkshire man over an attempted murder have issued a new appeal for information.

They asked for help in tracing Joseph Lowther last month but he has still not been found.

The 21-year-old Is wanted over a stabbing in Barnsley in which a 30-year-old man was knifed in Whispers nightclub in Regent Street.

Acting Detective Inspector Stuart Hall said: “Lowther is wanted in connection with a very serious crime and it’s important we locate him.

“A 30-year-old man received a suspected stab injury on Sunday, December 18 at the Whispers nightclub in Regent Street, Barnsley - an incident which shocked the local community.

“Thankfully, the victim is recovering and is no longer in hospital but our investigation continues in earnest.

“We believe Lowther could have travelled outside of South Yorkshire and has some connections to the north of England, but he really could be anywhere in the country.

“I’d urge anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact police and I’d warn any individual who may be shielding Lowther that you could face prosecution for helping him stay undetected.”

Members of the public who spot Lowther are urged not to approach him but to call South Yorkshire Police on 101
