Daniel Abed Khalife, 21, was on remand at HMP Wandsworth, London, facing trial for terror and Official Secrets Act offences.
He is believed to have made his escape on Wednesday morning.
Khalife had been accused of planting fake bombs at a military base. He denied all charges.

He is of slim build, has short brown hair and is around 6ft 2ins tall.
Commander Dominic Murphy, Head of the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command said: “We have a team of officers who are making extensive and urgent enquiries in order to locate and detain Khalife as quickly as possible.
“However, the public can help us as well and should anyone see Khalife, or have any information as to where he might be, then please call 999 immediately.
“I also want to reassure the public that we have no information which indicates, nor any reason to believe that Khalife poses a threat to the wider public, but our advice if you do see him is not to approach him and call 999 straight away.”
