The 58-year-old had gone to visit the Amaravati Monastery near Hemel Hempstead.

Police have warned that 58-year-old Malcolm Millman is a “potential risk to the public” and urged people not to approach him.

Det Supt Chris Ward, head of the Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit, will provide the media with an update on the ongoing investigation at a press conference this afternoon.

The latest information released by the police revealed that Millman was last seen in Manchester at 1pm on Monday having travelled by public transport from London, to Leeds and on to Manchester.

He has links to Kent, Warwickshire, London, Cleveland and Wales.

Millman was convicted of rape in 1996 and sentenced to 12 years.

The age of his victim has not been released and it is not known whether he is on the Sex Offenders’ Register. Police say he was “working towards his full release” while under the care at Chadwick Lodge.

Officers believe he made his getaway by train and have released CCTV pictures of a sighting at Manchester Airport on Monday.

But they say he is unable to leave the country as he has no access to a passport.
