Police are hunting for a prisoner who has gone missing from Hollesley Bay.

Jak Marku, 25, failed to return after being given leave to visit an address in Southall, Middlesex, on February 28.

Marku, who was serving a nine-and-a-half year sentence for importing cocaine, was due to return to the prison by 3.30pm yesterday. He failed to show up and was reported missing to police.

Detectives carried out enquiries overnight in an effort to trace him but officers are now appealing for help to find him.

Marku, who is described as white, around 5ft 10ins tall, of medium build, with dark hair and brown eyes, has connections to Middlesex and north-west London.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said: “Police are asking anyone who may have seen him or anyone with information about where he is now to contact officers.

“You should not approach him or take any further action.”

Call police with information on 101.
