Twin sex offenders are most wanted
Two brothers who are both high-risk child sex offenders have become the first twins to be put on the most-wanted list of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP).
Kenneth and Thomas Parker, aged 56, who have links to the Sussex and Warwickshire areas, are both wanted for breaching notification requirements of the sex offenders' register.
Thomas Parker is wanted for a recall to prison but the notification breaches mean they both could be jailed.
A CEOP spokesman said the brothers were the 23rd and 24th people to have their details published on its Most Wanted website.
They are both believed to have been in mainland Europe but their current location is not known. The brothers also have connections to France, the Netherlands and Portugal and are believed to be together, the spokesman said.
Kenneth Parker is 5ft 8in, of medium build with short brown hair. He has distinctive tattoos on both his arms: a fish and wings from a Para regiment on his left arm, and a dragon and a panther on his right.
Thomas Parker is 6ft and slim. He has cropped brown hair and may have facial hair. He has a scar by his left eye and also has distinctive tattoos on his arms of a Chinese carp, a naked woman, a swallow, a stallion's head and a wizard.
A CEOP spokesman said: "It should be noted that they have both demonstrated violent tendencies in the past."
CEOP chief executive Peter Davies said: "I want to ask members of the public to once again help us in locating these two dangerous individuals."
Detective Chief Inspector Nigel Jones, from Warwickshire Police, said: "We have done everything we can to locate Thomas Anthony Parker, a convicted high-risk child sex offender and the next step is to work with international agencies like CEOP to appeal to the public throughout Europe to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 if you have information on either twin."
