Greater Manchester Police have launched a manhunt for a convicted rapist who disappeared days after being released from prison on licence.

Luke Jones, 25, who had been jailed in 2012 for raping a 25-year-old woman in Manchester City Centre, was released on licence on September 16.

The police said Jones had been ordered to live at a bail hostel in Bury under the conditions of his licence but he has absconded from the hostel.

The public are being warned he could potentially pose a risk and not to approach him.

Detectives have appealed for anybody with information to contact police on 101, quoting incident number 2149 of 23/09/16, or to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
