A PRISONER has been missing from a semi-open prison since September, police have revealed.

Cleveland Police said John Henry Swales had breached the terms of his licence after absconding from Kirklevington Prison, in Yarm, two months ago.

The 23-year-old was jailed for burglary in 2016 and it is believed he could be anywhere in the country.
