Suffolk police are looking for a prisoner who has gone missing from Hollesley Bay.

Bernard McDonagh, 32, was reported missing to police by prison authorities on Wednesday, August 16, after he was absent from a roll call.

He is serving a four-year sentence in the Suffolk open prison for burglary and theft offences – he was part of a gang who were convicted of stealing 26 caravans and a number of motor vehicles, including 4x4s, from properties in Suffolk, Essex, and Kent at the end of 2015.

McDonagh is described as white, 6ft tall, with brown hair and a goatee beard. He speaks with an Irish accent.

He has links to Romford, Brentwood and Southampton. Members of the public are advised not to approach him.

Anyone who believes they may have seen Bernard McDonagh, or who has any information regarding his whereabouts, is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101.
