Police are still on the hunt for a man with a distinctive neck tattoo in Auckland.

Joseph Hobson is sought by police as he has a parole recall warrant.

The 27-year-old has distinctive facial and neck tattoos, which include the number 88 on his right cheek and the word 'East' across his neck.

Hobson is believed to have been actively avoiding police in the wider Glen Innes, Panmure and Pt England areas.

"Police are warning anyone who may be assisting Hobson in evading police that they may face prosecution themselves," a police spokesperson warns.

"Hobson should be considered dangerous and should not be approached. Instead, contact the Police immediately."

Anyone with information should contact Auckland City East CIB on (09) 5241921 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
