A prisoner awaiting sentencing for attempted hijacking is unlawfully at large.

James Donegan (30) did not return to custody on Monday October 22 after being granted compassionate bail by a court.

It is believed he is travelling across the Londonderry and Donegal areas and may be involved in further criminal activity.

He is described as being around 5’ 9”tall, of medium build with light brown hair.

Police asked Donegan to hand himself in to police without any further delay and asked anyone who knows his whereabouts, not to approach him, but to contact the Reducing Offender Unit at Strand Road on 101 immediately.
