Police have said a missing ex-prisoner who is unlawfully at large after having his licence revoked "may pose a risk".

Johnathan Kelly, from Drumchapel, Glasgow, was freed from Low Moss Prison in August. His licence was revoked for failing to comply with conditions.

The 33-year-old is described as white, 5ft 9in tall, with short brown hair and of a heavy build.

Det Insp Ian Hylands said that anyone who sees Kelly should not approach him and dial 999.

"Although not considered a danger to the public, we believe that due to circumstances that Mr Kelly may pose a risk," he said.

"Significant police enquiries are ongoing to trace him, however, at this time there have been no positive sightings so far.

"I would appeal to Mr Kelly to give himself up and contact with Police Scotland with a view to handing himself in."

Det Insp Hylands said Police Scotland would have "an increased high profile police presence in the Drumchapel area" until Mr Kelly is "traced and arrested".

He added: "At this time, members of the public are advised not to approach Mr Kelly but to contact police immediately via 999."
