Mug shot of wanted man sparks comparisons to everything from Jesus to Scooby Doo
A mug shot on West Midlands Police's Facebook page has received hundreds of comments after the wanted man's appearance drew comparisons with raft of a film and cultural characters.
Much of the flack centred around him perhaps needing a haircut but nothing seemed off bounds as people made jokes about him looking like anyone from Scooby Doo to Jesus to Merv in Home Alone, reports BirminghamLive.
The initial police appeal was posted on Tuesday just after midday when officers asked for the public's help to find 27-year-old Stephen Loveridge who is wanted on "recall to prison".
The post read: “Have you seen Stephen Loveridge? The 27-year-old of no fixed address, is wanted on recall to prison for breaching his licence conditions.
“If you see him, please do not approach him, but call 999 immediately.”
The post has been shared over 700 times and commented on over 400 occasions, with many people tagging friends to join in with the comments.
One of the most well liked comments was a comparison with the cartoon Scooby Doo, with one person commenting: "“Scooby and the gang missing one of their team? Not in the mystery machine is he under a blanket?”
Alongside the famous cartoon crime fighting gang, the mug shot has been compared to a plethora of other characters.
Another person compared him to Tom Hank’s character in Cast Away, writing: “There has also been reports he may be looking for his best friends Wilson.”

Many comments echoed the sentiment that he could do with seeing a barber.
On user snapped: “I haven't seen him by the looks of things the barber has not seen him either.”
“He needs recalling to a barber not prison,” someone else joked.
Others compared the mugshot to hobbit from the Shire in Lord of the Ring while many other people then pointed out his similarities to Marv from 90s Christmas classic Home Alone.
“Last seen trying to rob Macaulay Culkin,” a person quipped.
Others thought Jesus was the most similar lookie-likie with one person commenting: “Jesus has let himself go a bit hasn't he?”
