Police are still appealing for information on the whereabouts of a missing prisoner who has absconded whilst out on day release.

Brian Lynch has not been seen since 3pm on Thursday when he went missing in Preston city centre during his day out.

He was jailed in 1988 for the killing of 21-year-old Chi Yeung Yip in Manchester. He was moved to serve the remainder of his sentence at Kirkham Prison in December 2012.

Lynch is described as unhsaven, stocky, five feet tall, blue eyed short with short cropped ginger hair. He was wearing black trousers, a black jacket and dirty grey suede and leather trainers

Detective Inspector Jon Clegg said, “We do not believe that Lynch is a risk to the public but we are nevertheless very keen to trace him and return him to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence.

“Although he could still be in Lancashire, there is a possibility he may travelled back to the Greater Manchester area and so we would ask the public to be vigilant and 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.
