Taken from another forum:
'A young male (obviously due to age and an on going operation to get him i can't give you a name)
The male is wanted for a recent arson were a Baby
was inside the building (you may be aware of this?) but he went on the run and was hiding out in Bidston Hill
woods. Police have been informed he has a gun and there were threats to shoot the police if they tried to get him.
Hence the massive attention it got the other day. that person has now got of elsewhere as he is aware there well onto him and hopefully today or very soon they will catch him.
People in Bidston don't need to fear anything and should go about there business, i hope you can understand that i cant give you names as i suspect the police for there own reasons dont want this public yet. the wirral public can be rest assured the police are doing everything to apprehend this male.
The police have found the male in questions friends daughters handbag + keys in a tent on Bidston Hill
& she has been missing since Wednesday her name is Hannah and she is 17 and has long dark hair and she apparently is very 'gullible' as was described to us. We are now waiting to get a picture of her and for more information.'
There are 3 police on Eleanor Road blocking all the entrances to the woods and telling people they can't walk their dogs on the hill. There are also a number of police cars and armed response on the pathway up to the observatory. The path is blocked off by an orange camera van and only letting police cars through.
