Police are trying to trace a convicted sex offender who was last known to be living in Dagenham.

Patrick Mosekwe Kanda was jailed for rape and indecent assault in 1998, and was monitored following his release from prison in 2003.

However, the 36-year-old has not maintained contact with police and immigration authorities since February 2013.

Kanda, a Congolese national, was last known to be living in Honey Close, and police believe he could be a member of a gym.

If you can help trace Kanda, call Barking and Dagenham Police on 020 8217 9742, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
