Wanted Weymouth man David Chadwick found

A Weymouth man wanted for breaching his licence conditions has been located – with detectives thanking the public for their assistance.

David Chadwick, 58 and of Weymouth, was convicted of sexual offences against children in 2013. He had been wanted by Dorset Police since Wednesday 10 February 2016 and had travelled around Dorset before leaving the county, possibly on Thursday 11 February 2016.

DI Joe Williams, of Dorset Police, said: “Earlier this evening, Saturday 13 February 2016, David Chadwick presented himself to police officers working in Lowestoft, Suffolk. He will be immediately recalled to prison.

“I would like to thank members of the public, as well as the media, for their assistance in this investigation.”

Note: The photographs of Mr Chadwick previously circulated have been removed, as they were released to aid him being found and this reason no longer applies.
