An appeal offering a £500 reward for information leading to the arrest of Kyle Gilmore, 23, was posted on Facebook by Sussex Police.

And online jokers were quick to mock Gilmore, who is wanted for recall to prison, for the size of his neck.

One advised police to check tree tops while another warned that 6ft-tall Gilmore could be "looking at a long stretch".

One commentator wrote: "Get the chopper out. He's bound to be grazing off some tree tops somewhere."

Another said: "6ft tall! 1ft of that is his neck! Let's hope he is picked up soon. Shouldn't be too hard."

Some compared Gilmore's neck size to that of Hollywood director Steven Spielberg's alien character E.T, with one writing: "He's probably phoning home."

Labourer Gilmore, from Hastings in East Sussex, was jailed for two years, eight months at Lewes Crown Court in April 2015 for possession of drugs with intent to supply.

He was released on licence in July last year but has since breached its terms, and is now wanted for return to prison, a Sussex Police spokesman said.

He is white, of skinny build, with short, straight auburn hair, blue eyes, a fresh complexion - and a long neck.
