A prisoner remains on the run from Rangipo Prison, near Turangi.

Lex Miller got away yesterday afternoon in a stolen 1994 silver Toyota Camry with the licence plate TC7281.

He's European and is 48-years-old.

He was last seen wearing a tan shirt and blue jeans with white running shoes.

Police say he was in jail for violent crimes and shouldn't be approached.

He may be heading towards the Whakatane area.
