"We need to trace him urgently and I would encourage any member of the public to contact the police immediately if they see him.
"He was released from prison on January 11 with licence conditions, one of which was to reside in the Somerset area.
"However, Hogben failed to attend this address, and has subsequently been recalled to prison. Hogben should not be approached under any circumstances if seen as he is considered dangerous."
Hogben is 6ft tall, of broad build with short brown hair. He was last seen wearing a dark blue sports jacket, dark trousers and carrying a black sports bag.
Anyone who sees him should dial 999 immediately. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the non-emergency number 101.
