Warning As Sex Offender Absconds

A high risk convicted sex offender who poses a serious threat to children is on the run in Northern Ireland. The PSNI have taken the unusual step of warning the public about 35-year-old Paul Hunter Redpath. They said he should not be approached as he poses a serious threat to vulnerable children and young people.

A police spokesman said Redpath had failed to comply with his probation conditions and the PSNI have asked him to give himself up. Redpath left his approved accommodation recently and has not been seen since, despite police attempts to locate him.

Redpath is described as 6ft 2ins tall, thin, with blue eyes and a fair complexion. He also speaks with a Scottish accent.
