Mr Peirara was captured on CCTV in the busy Stratford shopping centre at 3pm yesterday, and it is believed he could travel to East Ham, where he has family.

Police are advising the public not to approach him but to dial 101 instead.

He is described as an Asian male, of heavy build, 6ft 1in tall with dark hair. He was last seen wearing a red hooded top over a blue shirt, black trousers and lime green trainers with a pink tick on them.

Anyone with information on Mr Peirara should call police on 101.
