Five sex offenders are missing
1:00pm Friday 25th October 2013 in Headlines
FIVE convicted sex offenders are currently missing or wanted by Dorset Police.
Officers are actively seeking the whereabouts of the individuals, who are all on the sex offenders’ register.
But the force said it was unable to reveal any details about the missing offenders, such as who they are or their offences.
At the time of the last annual report published by the Dorset Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements Management Board there were 574 registered sex offenders in Dorset.
Claude Knights director of charity Kidscape, said one missing sex offender was ‘one too many’.
She added: “It is concerning because they are on the register for a reason and one would hope that, costing what it does, MAPPA would prevent them from going missing.”
She said she hoped the board was doing ‘everything it possibly can’ to rectify the situation.
