Nationwide manhunt to find convicted sex offender who absconded from prison

A nationwide manhunt has been launched to find a convicted sex offender who absconded from a Lincolnshire prison.

Paul Robson was reported missing from HMP North Sea Camp in Boston, Lincolnshire, at around 7am today (February 13).

While he went missing from the Lincolnshire area, officers say he could be anywhere in the country.

And anyone who sees Robson is asked to immediately dial 999.

Officers say the 56-year-old is a danger to women and children.

He is serving a life sentence for attempted rape and indecent assault.

Robson is described as a white male with a bald head, a long goatee beard and is of a slim build.

Detective Chief Superintendent Andy Cox from Lincolnshire Police said: “We are still working tirelessly to locate Paul Robson and are still working through numerous lines of enquiry. He could be anywhere in the country, and we are really keen to hear from the public with potential sightings so we can take this man off our streets.

“If you are going out this evening, please try not to be alone. Robson is a dangerous sex offender and while he presents a particular danger to women and young children, I believe he can cause real harm to anyone he comes across.

“If you see Robson, please do not approach him, and do not try to apprehend him yourself. Call 999 immediately. We are really grateful for all the shares so far and rest assured we will continue our efforts to find and arrest him. Thank you.”
