A prisoner who escaped from Otago Corrections Facility last week remains at large, police say.

Stephen Uriah Maddren, 25, was reported missing from the prison on Tuesday afternoon, when he escaped from his escort while being transferred for a court appearance.

Yesterday afternoon, Dunedin police confirmed Maddren was still on the loose, despite the prisoner being spotted in a dense forestry block near Milton earlier in the week.

Maddren is described as European, 1.71 metres tall with mullet-type brown or black shoulder-length hair and no teeth.

He was last seen wearing green track pants and a green top.

It is believed Maddren is the first prisoner to escape from the low to high-medium security facility since it was opened in 2007. The prison holds up to 485 male prisoners.
