Convicted murderer Paul Flint who absconded from a Sussex prison could be in the region
A CONVICTED murderer who absconded from a Sussex prison and has been on the run for more than a month could be roaming the area.
Police are appealing for help tracking down Paul Flint, 48, after he walked out of Ford Prison on July 1.
Flint has convictions for murder and burglary and was jailed back in 1990. The latest reported sighting of Flint was on a train at Bristol Parkway station, heading towards Westbury, shortly after 6.20pm on Tuesday, August 13.
Flint is black, 5 ft 11in tall and of stocky build. He has black greying hair and wears glasses.
It is believed he could have committed at least three burglaries in Sussex since he disappeared and officers are keen to speak to him about those crimes.
The first break-in happened on July 8 at 11am at a home in Granville Road, Hove. The second was on July 15 between 8am and 10.30am in Cross Street, Hove, and the third was on August 5 between 10.10am and 11.10am in Dean Street, Brighton.
More than £2,500 cash was taken along with a black wallet and a black Sony Vaio laptop with the model number VPCEH1L8E/B.
Detective Inspector Dave Richards, of Sussex Police, said: "We think Flint is likely to commit more crime unless he is arrested so I would urge anyone that sees him to contact us immediately.
"Dial 999 but do not approach him."
