Police are warning people not to approach a convicted killer who is on the run.
Paul Maxwell absconded in Rochdale while on day release from jail.
He was sentenced to life in 1996 for the murder of an 85 year old man.
"It has now been more than 24 hours since Maxwell has absconded and our inquiries to trace him are ongoing. We are pursuing a number of leads and we will continue to explore every possible avenue in finding him.
"Because Maxwell may have limited access to money, he may surface in the areas he is known to have links to so I would urge people to be on their guard and if you see this man, please do not approach him but call police immediately."
