SUFFOLK – Suffolk police are asking for the public’s help in apprehending a convicted burglar who escaped from Hollesley Bay prison.

John Robert Storey, 30, is serving three years for burglary. He was reported missing about 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 8, according to a news release from the Suffolk Constabulary.

Storey is described as white, about 6 feet tall, with a stocky build, shaved head and blue eyes. He has connections to the Holloway area of London.

If spotted, police are warning people not to approach Storey and to dial 999.

Those with tips are asked to call Suffolk Police at 01473 613500, or their local police station.

Police ask for help in finding missing womanIPSWICH – Suffolk Police are asking for help in locating a 25-year-old Ipswich woman who went missing earlier this month.

Gemma Adams was last seen about 10 p.m. Nov. 14 after leaving her partner near Bramford Road, according to a police release. Police say Adams came to town to work as a prostitute.

Her partner reported her missing about 3 a.m. on Nov. 15 after she failed to come home.

Adams is described as being 5 feet 2 inches tall, with a small build and long blond hair. She also has a spotted complexion, the release stated.

She was last seen wearing a black waterproof waist-length jacket with a hood and light blue jeans. Adams also has several gold earrings.

“There may be an innocent explanation why Gemma is missing, however, it is out of her character for her not to return home after working in the evening and not to make contact with her partner,” said Detective Chief Inspector David Skevington, who is overseeing the investigation. “Because of the work Gemma does, we would consider her to be very vulnerable.”

Man suspected of abducting prostituteIPSWICH – Suffolk police arrested a man last week on suspicion that he abducted a prostitute and also for assault and drunken driving.

The 32-year-old Needham Market man was stopped on the A140 near Coddenham about 2 a.m. He is currently in custody at the Ipswich police station.

The identity of the man was not released.

The arrest is not connected to the disappearances of Tania Nicol, also a known prostitute who disappeared Oct. 30, or Gemma Adams, according to a police release. Those two cases are subject to ongoing investigations.
