He was on escorted leave and was last seen in Chatsworth Road, E9, when he went missing.
He is black, around 6ft 3inches tall and was wearing a khaki T-shirt, navy jumper, blue denim jeans and bright red trainers.
Members of the public are advised not to approach Abolarionwa and if they see him call 999 immediately.
It is thought Abolarionwa may still be in the east London area.
London Fire Brigade pulled out all the stops to rescue a horse that fell into a ditch a day before the Grand National.
Firefighters said the horse, called Cody, was distressed by the accident but didn't seem to have any injuries.
They were called just before 1.30pm this afternoon to Anderson Way in Belvedere, and it took an hour and a half to pull Cody out, who by then was covered head to hoof in mud.
Cody is now back with his owners and being checked over by a vet - but definitely won't be joining in the race tomorrow.
