Convicted robber on the run after absconding from Suffolk prison

A man has absconded from Hollesley Bay prison partway through an eight-year sentence for robbery and possession of a blade.

Dean Page, 34, has failed to return to the prison - near Woodbridge - from a period of temporary leave.

He was released on Friday, 10 January to stay at a house in Leigh-on-Sea and was supposed to return on Tuesday.

A police statement said: "He is described as white, five foot eleven inches tall, of medium build, with brown hair and was last seen wearing Nike sportswear and footwear.

"Page has links to the Rayleigh and Leigh-on-Sea areas of Essex."

Suffolk Constabulary have asked anyone with information about where he is to contact them on 101.
