The following is a Police Connect message.

Police are appealing for help to trace a Hollesley Bay prisoner who has failed to return following a period of home leave.

Simon Knights, aged 42-years-old, was released on temporary licence to go to an address in Newhaven, East Sussex, on Thursday 22 March and was due to return by 4pm on Monday 26 March. However, he failed to return and so has been reported missing to police.

Knights is serving a five and a half year sentence for burglary.

He is described as white, 5ft 9in tall, of medium build, with brown hair, and a tattoo of a British Bulldog on his right arm.

Anyone who may have seen Knights, or who has any information regarding his whereabouts, is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101.
