Damien Peters, 50, who was on parole, was last seen at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick about 4.15pm on Sunday.
As part of his parole conditions, Peters was required to wear an ankle monitor, which police last night discovered had been “forcibly removed” and discarded in nearby Kensington.
Peters pleaded guilty to murdering and dismembering two of his lovers, Andrei Akai and Bevan Frost, in an ice-fuelled eruption in his Surry Hills apartment in 2001.
The Supreme Court heard in late 2002 that Peters killed Mr Akai, 50, then dismembered his body in a bath tub, the year prior.
An investigation into Mr Akai’s disappearance led police to find a second victim’s dismembered body in Peters’ flat. The court was told Peters stabbed and killed Mr Frost while giving the 57-year-old a massage.
A police statement issued overnight described Peters as having a “caucasian appearance, about 175 to 185cm tall, with a muscular build and short brown hair”.
“He has a tattoo on his right upper arm of a snake wrapped around a panther and tribal style tattoos on his upper left upper arm,” the statement read.
Police warned that Mr Peters should not be approached.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000.
