At least 64 convicted dangerous sex offenders are on the run in the UK after breaking their licence conditions after being let out of jail early.
The fugitives – who include paedophiles – are all being hunted for recall to prison for breaching their strict release rules.
Among them are a criminal, 40, described as a ‘risk to women and children’, who groomed a teenage girl on Facebook for four years before sexually assaulting her.
Another – convicted of sexual activity with a child – had only been free for less than a month before he vanished.
There are some 341 of them who were originally been serving a prison sentence for violence against the person, separate from the sex offenders.
The Met Police are currently hunting Daniel Joslin, 40, who they describe as ‘a risk to young women and girls’ after he vanished in Rugby, Warks, following his release.
Joslin was jailed in 2012 for grooming a teenage girl on Facebook for four years before sexually assaulting her.
He is wanted for failing to comply with a Registered Sex Offender notification after his release from prison in May.
Joslin is a white male, 6ft 1ins tall, of slim build and is known to use a number of aliases.
