Manhunt launched after killer absconds from prison
The public have been warned not to approach 'violent' Anthony McGinley.
A convicted killer has absconded while on home leave from prison.
Anthony McGinley, 33, was handed a nine-year-sentence for culpable homicide in 2012.
On Wednesday, police said he had failed to return to HMP Castle Huntly, by Dundee after a period of leave.
A spokesman warned that McGinley was known to be violent and should not be approached if seen.
McGinley is described as white, 5ft 9, average build, with dark brown hair and green eyes.
He is believed to have connections in Hamilton and the Castlemilk area of Glasgow.
Anyone who has any information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police.
