Police in Derry are appealing for information as to the whereabouts of a remand prisoner who is unlawfully at large. 30-year-old James Donegan, who is awaiting sentencing for a number of serious offences including attempted hijacking, did not return to custody as required on Monday 22nd October, after being granted compassionate bail by the court.
