Police in Gloucestershire are trying to trace a prisoner who has absconded from Leyhill Prison. 30 year old Ashley Tessyman (pictured above) was serving a prison sentence for burglary and robbery in 2006. Police say he has links to Cornwall but they believe he could be in Dorset.

I am appealing for anyone who knows of the whereabouts of Ashley Tessyman to come forward – all calls will be treated with the strictest confidence. I urge members of the public who see anyone they believe to be the person pictured to call the police. In the interest of personal safety do not confront him.

– Detective Sergeant John O’Hara
