Police: 'We don't know where dangerous criminal is'

Despite officers searching for 54-year-old escaped prisoner Kevin Brown - who has been described as 'dangerous' - there have been no reported sightings of him, a police spokesman said.

It has been more than a month since Brown walked out of Ford and we still do not know where he is.

He may not be in the county at all or he could be hiding with someone in Sussex. He has friends and family across the South East.

We need to speak to anyone who might have seen him or who has any idea where he could be.

Brown committed very serious offences so has to be considered dangerous.

If you see him, don't approach him but instead find somewhere safe and call 999.

Brown is white, 6ft 1in, and of muscular build, with short dark cropped hair.

– Detective Inspector Dave Wardley-Wilkins
