Sullivan is described as white, 5ft 8in, of stocky build with blue eyes and short dark straight hair.

He has a scar near his left eyebrow and speaks with a London accent.

He has connections to the Barking and Dagenham areas of Essex.

Anyone who may have seen him, or who may have information about where he is now, should call Suffolk Police on (01473) 613500 or contact their nearest police station.
