A fresh appeal has been launched to find a prisoner who escaped from jail almost a year ago.

James Delahoyde, 40, was last seen at HMP Springhill at 8.15pm on April 21 last year.

He is a prisoner at HMP Springhill after being convicted of drugs offences.

Delahoyde has been described as white, slim, about 6ft, with receding dark brown hair and brown eyes.

Police have warned people not to approach him and instead, contact police as soon as possible.

Investigating officer, detective sergeant Andy Jones, of the investigation hub based at Aylesbury police station, said: “We are re-appealing for any information as to the whereabouts of James Delahoyde.

“Despite a thorough investigation and two public appeals there have been no sightings of Delahoyde, who has links to Maidenhead and Slough, since he went missing.”

Anyone with information can call 999 or 111 quoting reference 65 (22/4/17).
