Police have admitted they cannot find a ``dangerous'' criminal who walked out of an open prison in West Sussex more than a month ago.

Kevin Brown, who was serving a life sentence imposed at the Old Bailey in 2007 for conspiracy to rob and firearms offences, absconded from Ford Prison, on 10 April and has not been seen since, Sussex Police said.

Despite officers searching for the 54-year-old there have been no reported sightings of him, a spokesman said.

Detective Inspector Dave Wardley-Wilkins said:

``It has been more than a month since Brown walked out of Ford and we still do not know where he is.

``He may not be in the county at all or he could be hiding with someone in Sussex. He has friends and family across the South East.

``We need to speak to anyone who might have seen him or who has any idea where he could be.

``Brown committed very serious offences so has to be considered dangerous.

``If you see him, don't approach him but instead find somewhere safe and call 999.''

Brown is white, 6ft 1in, and of muscular build, with short dark cropped hair.

Anyone with information should call Sussex Police on 101 quoting serial 732 of 10/4, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
