The police are presently on the lookout for Daniel Briffa, who managed to escape from a Correctional Centre in Trawalla during the night.

Sometime between 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM on September 4th, Briffa successfully eluded the facility, employing unknown means.

Briffa stands at around 170cm in height and possesses a solid build, short brown curly hair, and a full beard and moustache. He also bears tattoos on his lower legs.


During his escape, Briffa was last seen in a forest green tracksuit, though it is possible that he has managed to acquire different attire since then.

In an effort to locate Briffa, police have released a photograph, hoping that someone may recognize him and provide information concerning his current whereabouts.
