Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, a 27-year-old terror suspect has escaped surveillance on Sunday night when he changed into a burka disguise while on a visit to a mosque, evading the authorities.
He entered the building wearing western-style clothes but left with his face and body fully covered by the traditional Islamic garment. He was last seen in west London on Friday afternoon.
Scotland Yard said that although he is not considered to represent a direct threat to the public, anyone who sees him must call 999 immediately.
He is subject to a Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures notice (Tpim). A spokesman for Scotland Yard 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."
Mohammed was born in Somalia and is 5ft8in tall of medium build. He is the second person to breach a Tpim.
In December, Ibrahim Magag, who is believed to have received terror training in Somalia camps, ripped off his electronic tag and escaped surveillance. The police are still searching for him.
