A manhunt is underway after a prisoner escaped from a Buckinghamshire jail after being released on temporary licence last Thursday morning (April 13).

Jayvan Burton, 33, was due to go back to HMP Springhill, in Aylesbury, on Sunday (April 16) but did not return.

Burton is currently serving four years for a personal robbery of a mobile phone, attempted robbery and burglary dwelling.

He has been described as a black man, around 5ft 7ins, slim, with short brown/black hair and a goatee beard.

Police have confirmed he was last seen at around 12pm on Friday (April 14) in the Lansdowne Road area of Tottenham, and they believe he may still be in the north London or Tottenham areas.

Detective Inspector Joe Banfield, of Aylesbury Local CID, said: "We are keen to speak to anyone who may know the whereabouts of Jayvan or can provide us with information about his movements.

“I would like also like to remind people that it is a criminal offence to harbour an absconded prisoner, and anyone found doing so is also risking arrest.”

Anyone with information can call TVP on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
