People have been warned not to approach a convicted burglar who has absconded from an open prison in Suffolk.

Dean Maguire, 26, was reported missing to police last night, Wednesday, after being absent from the 8pm roll-call at Hollesley Bay open prison.

He was serving a three year, nine month sentence for burglary.

Maguire is described as 5ft 8ins, slim, with brown eyes and brown hair. He is said to have an Irish accent and “stubbly beard”.

“Members of the public are advised not to approach him,” a police spokesman said.

Inquiries are said to be on-going to locate him involving multiple police forces.

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