Wanted sex offenders ‘may be overseas’
5:20am Friday 18th October 2013 in News
OFFICERS believe that three sex offenders who have disappeared in Dorset may be overseas.
As revealed in yesterday’s Echo, Dorset Police were searching for five missing people on the Sex Offenders’ Register.
Yesterday a spokesman said this number had gone down to four – but three of them are believed to have gone abroad.
Offenders are ranked in ‘levels’ by the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements Management Board depending on the risk they pose and supervision required.
As reported in the Echo, Dorset Police would initially not reveal the levels of the missing offenders but have now said all are ranked in level one, the least serious.
A spokesman said: “As of Thursday, there were a total of four registered sex offenders classed as missing or currently recorded as wanted and being actively sought by Dorset Police because they have broken notification requirements.
“Sex offenders are categorised as MAPPA one to three with level three being the most severe. All four registered sex offenders classed as missing or currently recorded as wanted from the Dorset area are all MAPPA one, and three of these are believed to be overseas.
“Dorset Police are proactively working to locate these individuals and arrest them.”
