Police appeal to public for help in finding terror suspect

Terror suspect Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed is being hunted by counter-terrorism officers after breaching his terrorism prevention and investigation measures notice, Scotland Yard said.

Somalia-born Mohamed was wearing traditional Islamic clothing when he disappeared, having changed into it at the An-Noor Masjid and Community Centre in Church Road, Acton, Scotland Yard said.

He had arrived at the mosque at 10am on Friday and was last seen there at 3.15pm that day.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "The Counter Terrorism Command immediately launched inquiries to trace Mr Mohamed and these continue.

"Ports and borders were notified with his photograph and details circulated nationally. Public safety remains our priority."

A court-imposed anonymity order banning the publication of Mohamed's name was lifted yesterday to allow police to make a public appeal for information.

He is 5ft 8in tall and is of medium build. Anyone with information about him should call confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.
