Seventh Convict Absconds from HMP Sudbury: Public Urged to Provide Information

In a concerning trend, Lewis Gilder has become the seventh prisoner to abscond from HMP Sudbury within a span of four months. Gilder, who did not return following a period of temporary release on licence from the open prison on Friday, is now the subject of a widespread appeal for information.

Convicted at Leamington Crown Court in 2019, Gilder is serving a nine-year and nine-month sentence for conspiracy to supply drugs and driving while disqualified. The 40-year-old, standing at approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall, possesses distinct features such as brown hair, brown eyes, a scar on his knee, and tattoos on his hand and neck.

Authorities are advising the public not to approach Gilder if spotted but to immediately contact Derbyshire police with reference number 24*53078. The police have provided various avenues for reporting, including their website’s crime reporting tools, sending a private message to the Derbyshire Constabulary Facebook page, direct messaging on X via @DerPolContact, or calling the non-emergency number 101.

Additionally, individuals with information can choose to remain anonymous by contacting the independent charity CrimeStoppers at 0800 555 111 or visiting their website.

The increasing frequency of absconding incidents from HMP Sudbury raises questions about the effectiveness of the prison’s security measures. Authorities are under pressure to review and enhance procedures to prevent further incidents and ensure public safety.
