A murderer is on the run after breaking the terms of his temporary release from open prison in South Gloucestershire.
Police are now urging the public to keep a lookout for the convict.
Terry Game was put behind bars in 2006 for killing Lisa Sullivan in Essex.
The 50-year-old was released on temporary licence from HMP Leyhill when he took his chance to run.
Avon and Somerset police have now issued an appeal to find the wanted man who has 'a history of abuse and violence'.
They said Game was last seen on Thursday morning (4 August) but failed to comply with his curfew.
A spokesman said: “He’s white, with black hair possibly in a ponytail, is of large build, has a beard and lip/nose piercings, and wearing glasses, black Adidas tracksuit bottoms, a black t-shirt and black trainers.”
They added he has links to Hackney in London.
Police have advised that if anyone sees Game, they don’t approach him and should instead call 999.
Lisa was the daughter of blind seventies pop star Lennie Peters. He made up one half of the duo Peters and Lee alongside Dianne Lee.
Her body was found in a caravan park in Walton-in-the-Naze by her son in August 2005.
Lisa and Game had been together at the time and were on holiday at the caravan park with her three young sons.
After the incident, Game told police Lisa had accused him of being useless in bed. He claimed he then strangled her in self defence after she attacked him, reports East Anglian Daily Times.
A jury found Game guilty of her murder after a two-and-a-half week trial at Basildon Crown Court in March 2006.
Judge Philip Clegg said at the trial: “Terry Game has been convicted by a jury of the murder of Lisa Sullivan. I am quite certain that on the evening in question, Lisa Sullivan was the victim of domestic violence.
“I found Terry Game was a bully to the woman who he lived with and in an outburst of violence, a loss of temper, in the early hours of August 3 he took her by the throat and quite literally strangled her.
“It must have been all too obvious that she was fighting for her life but nevertheless, driven by rage, he continued to do so.”
Game was sentenced to life in prison and was told he’d need to serve at least 15 years before being considered for parole.
Police have urged anyone who sees Game to call 999 quoting reference 5222186835, or ring 101 with any other information.
