Police follow up sightings of child killer
11:30am Friday 1st November 2013 in News
DETECTIVES hunting child killer Alan Giles are following up possible sightings of the 56-year-old across the South Warwickshire area.
Giles, who absconded from HMP Hewell on Monday, October 28, was serving two life sentences for the kidnap and murder of a 16-year-old student in 1995.
The search is continuing with specialist search teams, including dogs, visiting caravan sites and making further house to house inquiries to locate him.
At least one of the positive sightings of Giles was in Inkberrow last night.
Detective Chief Inspector Paul Judge said: “We have had several sightings of Giles in the South Warwickshire area reported to us and we are following up that information.
“It is vital that if anyone spots Giles they do not approach him but call us on 999 or 101 as soon as possible.
"He is a white man, 5ft 9 inches tall, with short grey hair and blue eyes. He has a tattoo of an eagle on his back and other tattoos of a flower, shark and swallow on his left arm.
“When Giles left prison he was wearing a grey Rockport sweater, blue jeans and white Asics trainers.
“Giles could be sleeping rough in woodland or farm buildings and we would appeal to dogwalkers, farmers, gamekeepers and others to keep their eyes peeled and stay alert."
