Probe after sex offender escapes from hospital

Have your say

ACTION will be taken over any security risks after a sex offender escaped from a secure hospital.

Stephen Munder, 54 climbed the fence at Mildmay Oaks hospital in Winchfield on April 21 but handed himself in to police in Milton Keynes on Sunday.

A parent at Ranvilles Junior School, on Oldbury Way, in Fareham, claimed to have seen Munden, sparking a warning letter.

Joy Chamberlain, chief executive of Prtnerships in Care said: ‘We will act on any perceived security risks. The process of investigation into the abscond is underway.’

Thousands of people shared the appeal from Hampshire Constabulary.

Munden was detained by the court under a hospital order after possessing, making, and attempting to make indecent images of children and sexually assaulting a child under 13.
