Perth: man escaped Serco guard while being deported from airport

8 June: A Vietnamese man who escaped Serco guards at Perth Airport yesterday while he was being deported is still on the run.

An intensive search involving officers from the Australian Federal Police and WA Police from three stations, backed up by the dog squad, failed to locate the man.

The missing detainee, who is not known to be a threat to the public, was described by officials as “an illegal maritime arrival”.

An AFP spokeswoman said the man escaped while under escort in the international departures terminal.

“At about 9.15am local time a Vietnamese national absconded while on escort at the departures check-in area within the Perth International Airport,” he said about 6pm.

“AFP and WA Police were advised and police assisted Serco in the search for the individual. The man has yet to be located.
