TWO men with connections to the Rhymney Valley are being hunted after absconding from an open prison in South Gloucestershire.
Stephen Rees, 31, and Liam Ahearne, 24, left HMP Leyhill at about 9pm on 30 January. They are thought to have connections with the Rhymney Valley, particularly Blackwood, Markham and Bargoed, and Merthyr Tydfil and south west England.
They are considered a "potential risk" and police ask anyone with information to call 101. Ahearne was serving an indeterminate sentence for aggravated burglary and Rees for wounding.
