Police are appealing for information on a convicted rapist who is currently missing.

Officers currently do no know the whereabouts of Christopher Reid, 44 from Woolwich.

In 2002, Reid was convicted for rape and robbery and sentenced to 13 years imprisonment; he was also placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.

He was arrested by police in mid-December 2018 for breaching his notification requirements but was bailed from Bromley Magistrates’ Court and has not been seen since.

Reid is currently wanted for breaching his sex offender notification requirements and failing to surrender to court.

Detectives have conducted a number of enquiries in order to trace his current whereabouts and are now calling on the public’s help.

Due to the nature of the offences he is wanted for, we would ask members of the public not to approach him.

Anyone with information on Reid’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Public Protection Unit at the South East Command Unit on 0208 284 9541 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
