A high-risk sex offender who has gone missing after he was released from prison is being sought by police.

A Registered sex offender, Christopher Trinnaman has been handed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order, which restricts his contact with females under 18, as well as his internet usage.

Trinnaman, 37, was released from HMP Littlehey prison and driven to Kings Lynn in Norfolk, but did not register with police.

Police believe he caught a train from Kings Lynn, possibly headed to Merseyside or Nottingham, and may be planning to travel overseas under a fake name.

HMP Littlehey, Perry, Cambridgeshire.

Trinnaman was sentenced to a four-year prison sentence in May 2010 after he posed as a teenage boy to groom children, the Evening Standard reported.

Using the now-closed MSN instant messaging service, he chatted with two girls, one 13 and the other 14, and asked one if would have sex with him. He also suggested they all meet in a hotel in Hull.

Trinnaman was also found guilty of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, and possessing indecent images of children.

Police have described Trinnaman as 5ft '9ins in height and of medium build with cropped brown hair, although he may be shaven headed now. He usually wears glasses.

Anyone who may have seen him or who knows his whereabouts should call officers from the Southwark Jigsaw Unit on 020 7232 6204.
