A man who went missing from a South Gloucestershire prison has now handed himself in to a police station in Cambridgeshire. Terry Game, 50, was arrested yesterday (August 8) and is now in custody. Game was serving his sentence at HMP Leyhill but was released on a temporary licence last week.
Avon and Somerset Police said he failed to return to the prison on August 5, issuing a wanted appeal to the public, reports our sister site GloucestershireLive. He was initially jailed for the murder of Lisa Sullivan at a caravan park in Essex in 2005. He was jailed for life with a minimum tariff of 15 years, but breached the terms of his licence following his release.

"Game was wanted after being released from HMP Leyhill on a temporary licence, and failing to meet the conditions of that licence. We'd like to thank everyone who helped share our previous appeal." HMP Leyhill, where Game was serving his sentence, is an open prison near Wotton-under-Edge, which is more than 100 miles away from the Cambridgeshire border.
He was found guilty in 2006 of strangling Lisa Sullivan at a caravan park in Walton-in-the-Naze in August 2005. Lisa Sullivan was the daughter of blind pop star Lennie Peters, who was a household name in the 1970s as part of the duet Peters & Lee. Game was 33 at the time, and according to an archived court report from the time the jury was told he had a 'history of abuse and violence towards women he became involved with'.
