We have been looking for Rhodes-Butler for a week but without success so far.
We need to speak to anyone who might have an idea where he could be or where he has been staying.
Police have made an urgent appeal after another violent armed robber went on the run - from an open prison. 37-year-old Simon Rhodes-Butler was jailed for seven years in September 2011 after attacking and robbing a garage owner.
Rhodes-Butler, who police describe as 'violent', absconded from Ford Prison in Ford, West Sussex, on May 22. The Londoner is the second person to flee the Category D open prison in as many months after fellow armed robber Kevin Brown vanished in April.
