HUNTED: TV fugitive could be on the run in Dorset

Bob - The Hunted

11:43am 7th June 2017

A fugitive could be in Dorset but he's not on the run from the Police he's trying to hide from Channel 4's TV cameras.

Hunted is a reality TV programme where civilians pit their wits against former intelligence professionals to escape capture for 28 days.  If they succeed they win a share of a £100,000 prize.

Bob Ailing is one of the contestants - he's 60 years old and was spotted in Seaton near Lyme Regis yesterday afternoon.

Hunted Chief Peter Blexsley has told Wessex FM time is running out to find him:

"It's all go here in the office. We are very much up against the ticking clock as the hunt isn't going to last for very much longer. I lead a team of 29 people, 17 in HQ and 12 who are out on the ground. We work tirelessly to track these fugitives down by mimicking the powers of the state, and we want to catch Bob."

"We believe Bob is a Freemason and maybe getting help from the Freemasons network."

"If you saw him yesterday or if you know where he is today please give us a call and remember we are the good guys here."
