A rapist on the run from a mental health unit is a risk to women and girls - and has previously threatened his victims with a weapon, admit police.

Malcolm Millman disappeared during a day trip to a Buddhist monastery from Eaglestone’s Chadwick Lodge last Saturday afternoon.

Since his escape, Millman was spotted at Manchester Airport Railway Station on Monday, October 26, at around 12.30pm.

He is not believed to have boarded a plane and he does not have a passport.

However, he has withdrawn a large cash sum from cash points during the weekend and has been using public transport. Police believe he may also be booking into hotels or hostels.

The balding criminal, who was convicted of rape in 1996, has medical conditions including a heart condition and diabetes so he may be seeking medication.
