A CONVICTED sex offender from Boston has gone on the run following his release from prison at the end of July.

David Lawson, 45, was living in Scunthorpe following his release from prison almost a fortnight ago, but has since left the area, breaching his registration requirements under the Sexual Offences Act.

Police in Humberside are now on the hunt for this wanted man, who they believe may have travelled to Ireland.

A force spokesman said: “This man is considered a danger to the public and needs to be apprehended as soon as possible, although police are urging the public not to take matters into their own hands.”

Anyone with any information about the whereabouts of this man contact Humberside Police on 0845 60 60 222, quoting log 402 from August, 9, 2011.
