The force said he has not been seen since despite being due for trial at Portsmouth Crown Court on April 25.
He is charged with sexual assault, which he denies.
Detective Sergeant Broadribb said: ‘Kieran was released by the court with strict bail conditions.
‘He has breached these conditions and therefore needs to be detained in order that he can stand trial.
‘If you see Kieran or know where he is, please contact police as soon as possible.’
A force spokeswoman added: ‘We believe that Kieran is in the Gosport area following two possible sightings earlier this week.’
Corless is white, 5ft 10in, has ginger hair which is short at the sides and tied back in a bun on top and slim.
He was last seen wearing black Fred Perry shoes, black jeans, a black Armani T-shirt, a black bomber jacket and gold jewellery.
