He absconded from HMP North Sea Camp in Lincolnshire on Monday, February 11, and is thought to be in Somerset.
He is described as white; around 5ft 8 to 5ft 9inches tall, of a slim build, with short black hair and hazel coloured eyes. He has a 4-inch scar on the back of his left hand and a tattoo stating 'Stacey' on his right arm.
Anyone who sees him is asked to call 999 immediately.
