This rider could help police with dangerous drive inquiries

UPDATE: BOWEN police are continuing to hunt for a motorbike rider who has allegedly evaded police several times this week and is putting lives at risk.

They have today released images of a man they believe could help with their inquiries.

Police first put out a call for information about the rider on Monday.

A statement released by police today says the rider and his motorcycle have been seen several times by officers since then.

Police claim he has continued to evade police in a reckless and dangerous manner, putting his own safety and the safety of others at risk.

"Most recently, the bike was allegedly observed with a passenger on the rear," the statement read.

They believe the man could help with their inquiries and they urge anyone who recognises him or the motorbike to phone police.

Information can be reported by phoning Policelink on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

EARLIER: Police say an unknown motorbike rider is "living on the edge" in Bowen as both officers and members of the community have witnessed the rider driving dangerously.

Bowen police have recently received multiple reports of a dark-coloured road bike driving at high speeds and in a risky manner.

The bike and its rider have been seen and heard at various locations throughout the Bowen township.

Police say an off-duty police officer observed the bike and its rider on the evening of Friday, September 18, on Don St, travelling at excessive speed.

Later that same night the rider failed to stop for police and instead chose to dangerously evade traffic officers in the town centre.

Police have issued a statement, saying they are concerned the actions of the rider are putting himself and the public at great risk.

"One tiny error of judgment in a built-up area at high speed can have fatal consequences for innocent drivers and pedestrians," the statement read.

Police are appealing to the public for any information about the bike and its rider, including registration details or dashcam footage.

If you have information for police, phone Policelink on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
