Burnham police in fresh appeal for help in finding missing sex offender

Police have this week repeated their appeal for residents in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge to look out for a missing registered sex offender who they believe may be in the area.

They say Lee Whitting has failed to let them know where he is living and may be in East or West Somerset, possibly in Taunton, Burnham or Highbridge.

"We're still seeking information from the public to locate this man, who is wanted by officers following a serious assault," a police spokesman told on Tuesday.

"Meticulous enquiries have been carried out, but we have been unable to locate Whitting and believe that he may be in the Somerset East and West areas."

He is described as white, around 5ft 9inches tall, of slim build and with dark brown hair that is receding and a beard. He looks unkempt.

Police have asked for anyone who knows his whereabouts to contact DC Andrew Daw at Taunton CID by calling 101.
