'He is dangerous': PSNI on hunt for murderer who failed to return to Magilligan Prison

Stephen Henry was given a day-release pass to visit family yesterday.

POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland are on the hunt for a prisoner who has failed to return to Magilligan Prison.

Stephen Henry (41) did not return to the prison yesterday, under the condition of a day-release pass he had been given to visit family.

The PSNI said that Henry, who was jailed for murder in 2004, is dangerous and may be in either the Craigavon or Belfast area.

Henry is described as being 5’10″ in height, of medium build with short brown hair. He has tattoos on both upper arms and scars on his forehead and left ear.

He was last seen in the Craigavon area at around 3.45pm yesterday.

“He has a history of violence and I would urge the public not to approach him but to contact the police immediately,” Detective Sergeant McColgan said.

“I would ask Mr Henry to hand himself into the authorities without any further delay.”

Anyone who knows of his current whereabouts or who has any information to contact police on 999.
