POLICE are appealing for information about the whereabouts a Preston man who absconded from an open prison in Lincolnshire on Tuesday (9th October).

He is currently serving a life sentence for robbery and has previously resided in Lancashire, having lived mostly in the Preston area but he has also stayed in Blackburn.

Polce say  “We believe that Cyrus is in the Preston area and has strong links to South Ribble. We’d ask the public to be vigilant and not to approach him but report any sightings to the police.

He is described as white, around 5ft 11inches tall, stocky build with cropped hair and hazel eyes.

A police spokesperson said, “We believe that Cyrus is in the Preston area, specifically he has strong links to South Ribble, including Penwortham and Lostock Hall. We would ask the public to be vigilant and not to approach him but report any sightings to the police – any details the public may have could be crucial.”

Information can be passed to local police either in person or on 101 or information can be passed anonymously via Crimestoppers 0800 555 111
