Another inmate has gone on the run from an Isle of Sheppey open prison.
Peter Gilheney disappeared from HMP Standford Hill, in Eastchurch, on Monday.
Kent Police said the 29-year-old, pictured right, failed to return after a short release period.
Gilheney, from Romford, in Essex, is described as 5ft 2ins, with a stocky build.
He is the fourth prisoner to escape from HMP Standford Hill this year.
Last month, Paul Stone, 36, from Medway; Anthony Hogan, 50, from south London; and Nicky Gale, 29, from Dartford went missing.
Stone was discovered a few days later, but Hogan and Gale are thought to still be on the run.
HMP Standford Hill (pictured below) is a category D open prison where some inmates are approaching the end of their sentence.
