A convicted double murderer out on parole is on the loose in Sydney after removing his electronic ankle bracelet.
Damien Anthony Peters, 50, was last seen at Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick at about 4:15pm on Sunday. Police found his ankle tag about four hours later nearby.
Peters pled guilty to murdering two of his lovers in 2001. He stabbed Tereaupii Aka and dismembered his body, then eight months later also murdered and dismembered Bevan James Frost.
Peters was jailed for 21 years, with a non-parole period of 13 years, in 2002. He has been on parole since November 2016.
Police have described him as being of Caucasian appearance, about 175 to 185 centimetres 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 various other tribal-style tattoos.
Police are recommending people call triple-zero if they see Peters.
