Escaped murderer still at large

Daniel Somers, a convicted murderer, is still on the run 12 days after he failed to return to Castle Huntly prison.

The 49 year-old has been in jail for most of his life after he was given a life sentence for murder in 1978. He had been granted home leave to return to Glasgow but failed to return on the 7th March as expected. He had only been at the open prison near Dundee for just over a year.

He had previously been released on license in 1999 but was returned to prison a year later following an assault charge.

Somers is 5ft 8″ with shaved hair and blue eyes. He has tattoos on both his arms and is originally from the Priesthill area of Glasgow. Tayslide Police are appealing to the public for any information about his whereabouts.
