McNally was jailed in December 2010 for wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. He is described as white, 5ft 7in tall, of medium build with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a surgical scar on the right side of his neck.

He has links to Salford, Manchester, Cheshire and Durham.

A Lancashire police spokesman said: “McNally is wanted after absconding from prison. He was jailed in 2010 for a violent assault and is a dangerous offender. If you see McNally, please do not approach him and instead contact police immediately.”

McNally’s disappearance came just hours after fellow offender Carl Tanner, 23, made his escape from the open prison.

He is currently serving a 20 month sentence for robbery.

He is described as white with brown hair and green eyes, with scars on his upper lip and near his right eye. He has several tattoos including the word ‘mum’ on his neck, ‘Jade’ on the left side of his body, ‘hope’ on his left hand and a tribal design on his right arm. He has links to Blackburn and Burnley.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of McNally can contact police on 101 quoting log number 1379 of November 23.

People who have information about Tanner should quote log number 612 of November 23.
