Manhunt continues after ‘dangerous sex offender’ absconds from prison
Lincolnshire Police officers are continuing their search for ‘dangerous sex offender’ Paul Robson today.
Robson, 56, absconded from HMP North Sea Camp in Boston, Lincolnshire, at around 7am on Sunday 13th February.
He was serving a life sentence for attempted rape and indecent assault.
Robson is now the subject of a nationwide manhunt.
Now, in an updated statement, authorities have confirmed that despite having been allowed to serve his time in an open prison, Robson “poses a real risk to the public.”
East Area Commander Chief Superintendent Kate Anderson said: “Our officers continue their work to locate and apprehend Paul Robson who has been missing since yesterday morning.
“We are grateful to everyone who has already shared our appeals and we’d also like to extend our thanks to our policing colleagues and members of the public who are sharing our request for information.
“We understand this news has caused some concern, not just for our local communities here in Lincolnshire, but across the country.
“We’re still working through lines of enquiry and are working with partner agencies to find Robson.
“We are still appealing for members of the public to contact us if they have any information on this man’s whereabouts by calling 999.
“If you do see him, please do not try to approach him, or try to apprehend him yourself.
“He poses a real risk to the public and we are doing everything in our power to find and arrest him.”
Robson is described as white, of slim build, bald and was last seen with a long goatee beard.
At the time of his disappearance he is believed to have been wearing a black long-sleeved Berghaus top, a grey ‘French’ t-shirt, dark bottoms, a dark coloured woollen beanie and a light-grey donkey-style jacket with orange on the shoulder area.
The public are warned not to approach Paul Robson.
Instead, anyone who might have seen him or who has information regarding his whereabouts is urged to contact Lincolnshire Police immediately by calling 999.
