Police are hunting a tattooed burglar - who could be on the run in Cornwall.

Gary Cooper disappeared from a jail in Gloucestershire a fortnight ago.

Now officers reveal the scar-faced 53 year old used to live in St Austell, Newquay and Truro.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Cooper had been convicted of burglary at Truro Crown Court and jailed for four years.
 
"He was transferred to the open prison in June 2014 ahead of his planned release in February 2015.
 
"The 53-year-old is described as white, about 5ft 11ins tall, with grey hair and blue eyes. He has a scar on his forehead and tattoos on his arms of a dagger and a rose, a dagger and a snake, and a mermaid."
 
Neighbourhoods Manager Inspector Bob Evely said: “We would ask any member of the public who sees him to call us immediately on 999.

"Anyone with any other information which could help us trace him is asked to contact us online or call 101 quoting the reference 98472/14.”
