A PRISONER who failed to return to HMP Edinburgh last month has been traced after a police appeal.

Officers appealed for information yesterday after Jared Kay, 25, did not turn up at the Saughton prison on August 18.

Police today confirmed that Kay has now returned to the prison estate.

A spokesman said: “Officers would like to thank those members of the public who participated in the search.”
