Queensland police are continuing the hunt for a prisoner who has escaped from a Townsville jail.

Matthew Campbell, 29, absconded from the Townsville Correctional Centre, where he was serving time for unlawful use of a motor vehicle, on Tuesday afternoon.

Police say anyone who sees Campbell, whose tattoos include a clown on one arm and the words 'One life One Chance' on his neck, should not approach him but call triple zero immediately.
