Police appeal for help in tracing violent criminal

Police officers who are looking for a man who is wanted on recall to prison are appealing for information as to his whereabouts.

Perry Wilson, 20, was released from prison in April 2014.

Under the conditions of his prison release licence, Wilson is required to stay at an address in Kew but he has not been seen since 13 June and is wanted on recall to prison for breaking the conditions of his licence.

It is believed that he could still be in Kew or the wider Richmond-upon-Thames area. He also has strong connections to Hammersmith and Fulham area.

He is described as black, 5 feet 9 inches tall, with brown hair and eyes.

He has a scar on his right cheek, and it is possible that he now has a moustache or beard.

Wilson is considered violent. Members of public who see him are advised not to approach him but to call police immediately on 999.
