Police Appeal to Trace Absconder, John Henry Swales

Police are appealing for information to trace John Henry Swales who absconded from Kirklevington Prison in Yarm in September.

Swales, aged 23-years-old, is being sought by Cleveland Police as he has breached the terms of his licence.

Officers continue to carry out enquiries to locate him and are appealing for help from the public.

Swales was jailed in 2016 for burglary and it is believed he could be anywhere in the country.

Anyone who has seen him or has any information about his location is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Louise Sproson from Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
