Hollesley: Search for escaped prisoners

POLICE are appealing for help to trace two Hollesley bay prisoners who have absconded.

Luke Piggott, 23, and David Devlin, 21, went missing on Sunday, June 2 at 11am.

Piggott, from Houghton Regis in Bedfordshire, was serving a sentence for robbery after being jailed in 2007, while Devlin, from Ruislip in Middlesex, was serving a four-year six-month term for burglary.

As soon as officers were told the pair were missing, they contacted other constabularies where the men are known to have links including Metropolitan Police, Thames Valley, Leicestershire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire Police.

Address checks were carried out on June 2 and have been since that time to try and locate them.
