An escapee from Dhurringile Prison has been sighted in Shepparton this morning.

It's believed Say Hour entered a church near the intersection of Maude and McKinney Sts around 10.30am and asked for assistance to get to Melbourne.

He was wearing the same clothes as when he left the prison last night and complained of sore feet.

Police are continuing the search for Hour and urge local residents and those travelling between Shepparton and Melbourne to keep a look out for him.

Investigators believe the 40-year-old left the minimum security prison grounds sometime between 7pm and 8.30pm.

Police were notified and a search of the immediate area was conducted.

He is described as being Asian in appearance and around 167cm tall with a medium build and dark hair. 
He has tattoos on his forearms, chest and lower back. 
When last seen he was wearing prison issue green tracksuit pants and a green jumper. 
Investigators have released an image of Hour in the hope someone recognises him and can provide information regarding his whereabouts. 

Anyone who sights Hour is urged to contact Triple Zero (000) immediately.
