Prisoner On the Run Since July

24 August 2011, 15:24

A man who's absconded from an open prison in South Yorkshire could be in the Thames Valley.

Daniel O'Loughlin, 35, didn't return to HMP Hatfield on July 18 after being given a temporary release to work in the community.

He's serving the last part of a custodial sentence for his role in an organized crime group that carried out high-profile and high-value burglaries at large country houses across central and western England.

O'Loughlin was jailed in August 2008 and had to pay back £113,000 he made from his crimes.

Thames Valley Police have told Heart he has links to Wokingham and other areas in Berkshire.

Intelligence officer Sam Stimpson said:

"O'Loughlin has been missing for more than a month and we need to find him and return him to prison.

"He has strong links to Wokingham, as well as other parts of Berkshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire."

He added that while he doesn't pose a risk to the public he shouldn't be approached.

Anyone with any information about O'Loughlin’s whereabouts should contact Thames Valley Police via 0845 8 505 505.
