Detectives search for prisoner on the run

Brian Waite

Detectives in West Yorkshire are renewing an appeal to trace a convicted criminal who's believed to be on the run. Brian Waite who was born in Leeds, escaped from prison in 2006 where he was serving an 11-year sentence for robbery, arson and handling stolen goods.

It is thought he had been living in Spain or Holland but there have been possible sightings of him in the East End Park area of Leeds. Waite is described as white, 5 feet 9 inches tall of a medium build, with fair hair and brown eyes.

Detectives have been actively trying to locate Waite since his disappearance from HMP North Sea Camp prison on 30th November 2006 and have reasons to believe that he is committing further crimes whilst on the run.
