A PRISONER who escaped from custody while undergoing treatment at the Mid-Western Regional Hospital a week ago has still not been located.

Christopher O’Donnell, 25, from Moyross, was chased by two prison officers as he left the hospital on 29 August, but managed to escape. He has been serving an 18-month sentence for burglary and was not due to be released until May 2012.

During his trial in December 2010, his solicitor said O’Donnell was experiencing domestic difficulties and that intoxication was involved in the robberies. He pleaded guilty to three burglaries, according to a Limerick Leader report at the time.

Gardaí are continuing to search for him.
