Search launched for man who absconded from Ford Prison
Police are searching for 54-year old Kevin Brown, who absconded from Ford Prison in West Sussex on Thursday 10 April.
Brown is described as white, 6'1" and of muscular build, with short dark cropped hair. When last seen that morning he was wearing prison clothes, a green t-shirt with orange shoulder patches and light green trousers, but may well have discarded them since then.
He was serving a sentence of life imprisonment imposed at the Old Bailey in 2007 for conspiracy to rob and firearms offences.
Detective Chief Inspector Dave Wardley-Wilkins of Sussex Police said; "We have been making widespread enquiries to establish the background to Brown's disappearance and to find him, especially across the South East where he has family and associates.
"There is currently no evidence that Brown poses a direct physical threat to members of the public, but in view of the seriousness of his offences, including a history of violent offences, we advise anyone who knows where he is, or who has any other information, not to approach him but to contact the police right away.
You can either dial 999 or call Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 732 of 10/4. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
