THREE convicts have gone missing from a prison in less than a month.

Clayton McCalman is the latest person to abscond from Ford Prison, near Arundel.

The 32-year-old left the prison between 5am and noon on Monday and police say his “direction of travel is unknown”.

The Argus:

Anyone who sees McCalman is being urged not to approach him but call 999 immediately. He is known to have strong links to London, but it is not known where he went after leaving the prison.

Sussex Police have issued an image of him, above, and asked anyone who might have information on his whereabouts to report this online or call 101 quoting serial 0607 of 02/11.
