Bedfordshire Police are on the hunt for a prisoner who absconded while on home leave in the county and wants the public’s help to track him but say he should not be approached.

Burglar, John Sebborn, 37, was released on a temporary licence to Bedfordshire for leave from Tuesday 20 to Friday 23 July, however, he did not meet his leave conditions.

He’s described as white, approximately 6ft 2 ins in height, of stocky build with blue eyes and brown hair.

Anyone who knows of his whereabouts or has seen him should not approach him but contact Suffolk Police, quoting CAD 301 of Wednesday 21 July.

He is currently serving a sentence of nine years and nine months for burglary offences at HMP Hollesley Bay.
