Sex Offenders Go Missing in England, Wales and Scotland

When sex offenders go missing … it can only mean more crimes in the future as sex predators fall below the radar of authorities.

England, Wales and Scotland has a serious missing persons case on their hands. The problem and the severity is that it is not one missing person, but hundreds. The BBC is reporting that 317 sex offenders were reported as missing or unaccounted for. Since it is common for sex offenders to re-offend, one might think this to be a major issue as to the lack of tracking of sexual predators.

The figures, for three-quarters of the police forces in England, Wales and Scotland, were disclosed to the BBC after a Freedom of Information request.

Data supplied by 38 police forces showed 317 sex offenders were reported as missing or unaccounted for.

In January 2007, a significantly higher number of forces - 49 – reported that 322 sex offenders were missing.

Laura Garza Missing Last Seen Leaving the Marquee Manhattan Nightclub at 4 AM Wednesday 12/3/08

25 year old Laura Garza has been missing since Wednesday Laura_garza2morning, December 3, 2008. Laura Garza from Bay Ridge was last seen leaving a Manhattan nightclub, The Marquee, at 4 am with two men. Police fear that she may have been harmed by a convicted sex offender. Police described Garza as 5-feet-2 and 120 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

“We suspect foul play and are concerned for her safety,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said yesterday.

Police last night were questioning one of the two men, a 25-year-old once convicted of a sex crime, after going to his home in Wallkill, in upstate Orange County.

Investigators did not find Garza at the house, but they found a piece of carpet mysteriously cut out from its place on the floor, a police source said. Blood stains were also found in the house.

Laura Garza was captured on club video tape reported leaving the night club with two men willingly. However, did Laura Garza know who or what she was leaving the club with?

At some point, Garza split up from her friend and was captured on video leaving the location with her dancing partner and another man.

She appeared to have left with them willingly, and didn’t look intoxicated, police sources said.

Sources said the men drove with her upstate. At some point, one got out and went home.

Witnesses at the club told cops that the men with whom Garza was spotted leaving were “regulars,” and were able to identify them. This led cops to the upstate home of the sex offender, sources said.

Investigators believe that whatever happened to Garza occurred upstate, and the New York State Police are now leading the investigation.

Two Men questioned in the case of missing Laura Garza

On Friday night, the police were questioning two people they suspected were involved in Ms. Garza’s disappearance, said Paul J. Browne, the chief police spokesman.

“We suspect foul play and are concerned for her safety,” he said. “Detectives identified two men who were seen leaving the club with her and determined that both of them reside outside the city in upstate New York.”

Cops hunting a woman who disappeared from a Manhattan nightclub towed a bloodstained SUV from their prime suspect’s upstate family home today – hours after the sexual deviant called a pal begging him not to speak to police, sources said.

Investigators searched lakes and a wooded area near Michael Mele’s family’s Middletown house for Laura Garza, 25, whose case is being treated as a homicide.

Another police source said bloodstains were found in the SUV.

Cops also said they found a piece of carpet mysteriously cut out in an apartment Mele maintains near the family home. More blood was allegedly found in the house.

Neighbors said landscapers working on the property discovered a knife, which they turned over to police.

UPDATE II: Man seen with missing NYC woman jailed in Rockland

The Rockland County Sheriff’s Department says 23-year-old Michael Mele, a registered sex offender, is being held on $50,000 bail.

Detective Lt. William Barbera says Mele violated the terms of his probation by consuming alcohol and by failing to report to his probation officer. Mele’s attorney did not return a message seeking comment.

Mele and another man were seen leaving a Manhattan nightclub early Wednesday with 25-year-old Laura Garza.

UPDATE III: Police divers now searching east side of Echo Lake for Garza

State police divers are now searching the east side of Echo Lake in their continued search for clues about the disappearance of Brooklynite Laura Garza.

Seven divers have been at the lake since this morning, working in bitterly-cold water and under the 5-inch-thick ice.

They’s been working by feel in the water that’s obscured by mud and silt. The lake is split by Echo Lake Road in the Town of Wawayanda. Having finished a search of the west side of the lake, divers turned their attention Thursday afternoon to the east side.

Police divers were last at Echo Lake on Dec. 23, 2008.

19 year old Brianna Denison disappeared January 20, 2008 and whose body was later found in a field in South Reno on February 15, 2008. At the time of the recovery police stated they had found DNA evidence at the scene of the crime that they say links the suspect to other sexual assaults near the UNR campus.

Police said they recovered DNA evidence at the scene that would link a suspect to the crime. The DNA samples also linked Denison’s killer to three other sexually related attacks on women at or near UNR from October to December 2007.

Could police have finally found a serial rapist that has been connected to at least 3 reported assualts in the Reno area?
