A convicted paedophile who sparked a police hunt after allegedly breaking his licence conditions has given himself up in Lowestoft.
David Chadwick, 58, of Weymouth, was convicted of sexual offences against children in 2013.
He had been wanted by Dorset Police since Wednesday, February 10, and had travelled around Dorset before leaving the county, possibly on Thursday, February 11.
Police thought he might have been travelling to Norwich, and warned members of the public not to approach him 'as he presents a risk to the public'.
DI Joe Williams, of Dorset Police, said: 'Earlier this evening, Saturday, February 12, 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.'
