Murderer still on the run in Hackney

A convicted killer is still on the run from a mental health unit in Hackney after escaping on Wednesday afternoon.

Police have not yet managed to track down 27 year old Lerone Michael Boye who escaped on Wednesday. He was sentenced 28 years in jail last December for the murder of 17-year-old Kelvin Chibueze in Ilford.

If Boye is seen, the Met are advising people not to approach him and call 999 instead.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts can also call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
