Auckland police are hunting a convicted murderer who has allegedly breached his parole.

Michael John Hindman, 54, pleaded guilty to the 1999 drug-related murder of Bruce Barlow, who was hit on the head with a hammer, stabbed in the neck and dumped in Woodhill Forest northwest of Auckland.

Hindman was sentenced to life in prison but was paroled in May 2011.

Waitakere police today said he had breached his parole and a warrant had been issued for his return to prison.

"Hindman is considered to be dangerous and should not be approached," police said.

Hindman has previously lived in the West Auckland area.

Anyone who knows his whereabouts is asked to call 111.
