Who is Sean Phipps?

Police have reissued an appeal to find a convicted rapist who fled prison more than two months ago, warning he may be living “off the grid”.

Sean Phipps, 51, was unable to return to HMP Leyhill, near Bristol, after being released on June 1.

Phipps, who has convictions for kidnapping and rape, is described as white, 6 feet 2 inches tall and slim.

Avon and Somerset Police said today that they have a dedicated team that follows up on all reported sightings and coordinates with other forces across the country.

It is believed that it may still be in the greater Bristol area, including north of Somerset or south of Gloucester.


Phipps is known to walk and hitchhike long distances and steal bicycles for transportation, investigators said.

Avon and Somerset Police said Phipps has an interest in living off the grid and may be camping and foraging in rural areas.

They said he can approach people to ask for water or work as a casual day laborer.

Or he may be seeking shelter in disused buildings in Bristol, or other cities in the South West, and he may be foraging for food in containers.

Detective Inspector Keith Smith added: “We also know that he has a tendency to use false sobbing stories to garner sympathy and help from unsuspecting members of the public.”

Police have told anyone who sees the 51-year-old to call 999 immediately and have warned people he may be camping somewhere or traveling on foot, by bike or hitchhiking.

Investigators said Phipps had previously turned himself in when he knew police were looking for him.

The criminal, who was convicted of kidnapping in 2002 and rape in 1989 and 1993, has had several surnames, including Cawthray, Goldthorpe and Perry.

Anyone who sees him is asked not to approach him and to call 999 immediately, while those with any information on his whereabouts can contact the police on 101, quoting reference number 5222130002.
