A new appeal's being made by police to help them find a missing Suffolk prisoner

48 year old John Jackson was dropped off for a charity work placement in Felixstowe Road in Ipswich around 8.40am on Thursday, May 16 and he was asked to collect keys to open up the charity shop premises. He collected the keys but when another member of staff arrived at the premises a short time later he was nowhere to be found and a quantity of cash was found to be missing.

Jackson was serving an indeterminate sentence for aggravated burglary, home burglary and robbery. He has contacts in the Bedford and Tebworth area of Bedfordshire but enquiries by police have shown he may still be in the Ipswich area and officers are continuing to search for him.  

He is described as white, 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build, with hazel eyes and grey hair, clean shaven and with an Essex accent. He has a tattoo on his right arm of the word ‘Mum’ with dates underneath.

Officers are appealing for help in locating him and are asking anyone who may have seen him or anyone with information about where he is now to get in touch.

If you see Jackson you should phone police with the details. You should not approach him or take any further action.

If you can help please call Suffolk Police on 101 or contact your nearest police station.
