Another report came from the news of another inmate being found after escaping from Hollesley Bay Prison at the beginning of the month.

The reports of these escaping convicts are being shown from reports back in November 2020 where the hunt began for Robert Maxfield, an inmate who was serving a life sentence for death by dangerous driving as well crimes on theft with an intent to steal. Mr Maxfield escaped on 28th November 2020 and was described as 5ft 11in, tall and has a black panther tattoo on his right arm and another tattoo on left forearm.

In 2019, a report was released that statistics showed 14 inmates had escaped from the open prison from 2017 to 2019, however, the question is still asked as to how these individuals escape and where they flee? There are no known public transport routes and the nearest train station is some distance away.
