Blackpool man wanted on prison recall

Friday, September 20, 2019

Have you seen registered sex offender Red O’Connor, also known as Red Vaughan, 30, wanted on recall to prison?

O’Connor (pictured below), from Blackpool, was originally convicted of a sexual assault in 2008 and has failed to return to his registered address. He has therefore breached his notification requirements which are part of the terms of his release.

It is believed that O’Connor is in the London area and has links to Blackpool and Thornton Cleveleys, as well as Brighton and Chiswick, Ealing and West Drayton.

He is described as white, round 5ft 7ins, of muscular build with short mousey brown hair and has a tattoo of an angel on his right arm.

DS Angela Gray from the Management of Sexual or Violent Offenders (MOSOVO) Unit said: “We need to trace O’Connor, who will be aware he is in breach of his notification requirements and that we are looking for him. “If you have seen him or know of his whereabouts, please get in contact with us as soon as possible.

"Similarly I would urge O’Connor if he sees this appeal to hand himself in at the nearest police station."
