Two inmates jumping from the fence of Derbyshire’s HMP Sudbury are “still in hiding,” police said.
Sam Hawkins and Darren McKay were spotted on CCTV Monday night (11 October) at 10.15pm in an open Class D prison escape. Derbyshire Police Said.
He then looked to Ashbourne on the A515, one of them carrying two rucksacks and the other carrying a rucksack and wearing a towel around his neck.
Mackay, 37, who is linked to the Harpenden area of Luton and Hertfordshire, was sentenced at St Albans Crown Court in 2020 for theft and driving offenses.
Police described him as approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall, with blue eyes, brown hair and a tattooed elastic on the arms.
Hawkins, 34, was linked to Bexleyheath, Plumstead and Thamesmead, London, and was sentenced at Stressbrook Crown Court in 2019 for theft, theft and driving offenses.
He is about 5 feet 7 inches tall, of medium physique, and has brown hair and brown eyes.

This year, at least a dozen men have escaped from HMP Sudbury, including about 600 men – most of them at the end of their sentence.
According to the report, more than 1,500 men have been jailed since 1996 Derbyshire Telegraph.
At the height of his escape from prison, a prisoner goes into hiding every five days, the newspaper adds.
In a 2018 report, Derbyshire Police Chief Constable Peter Goodman said that inmates usually flee for “different reasons”.
He said: “But it is usually a family crisis or some kind of relationship trouble rather than an attempt to escape from prison and get justice.”
Anyone with any information on Hawkins and McKay’s current whereabouts is asked to contact Derbyshire Police using any of the following methods, including reference 1278-111021.
