Police hunt sex pest who was convicted of trying to groom a 13-year-old girl for sex

POLICE are hunting a convicted sex pest who had been let free in the community after previously using the internet to groom a 13-year-old girl for sex.

Father-of-three Donald Dowdle is wanted for failing to comply with a community worker and failing to report to police.

Police would not provide details of when and where the 48-year-old was last seen.

A police spokeswoman would not comment on where the man had been living since he was freed from jail or to which police station he had been expected to report.

Dowdle has previously lived in Laverton.

He was jailed in late 2012 after using Facebook and MSN Messenger to groom who he thought was a young teen but who was actually an undercover police officer.

Dowdle requested pictures and sent explicit messages, contacting the “teen” more than 20 times in three weeks.

“Does it make me sound like a sicko wanting to kiss a girl your age?’’ he asked her.

Dowdle, then a kitchen hand, repeatedly told the girl she should hide their relationship from her mother.

He was arrested near Seaford railway station, where he went to meet the girl.

In 2012, County Court Judge Sue Pullen said she didn’t accept his claim that he was meeting the teen to tell her to leave him alone in person because “some people don’t get the message’’.

Dowdle was jailed for four months.

Police have issued warrants for the man’s arrest and have released a photo in the hope that someone may have seen him today.

He is described as 180cm tall, thin build, fair complexion, hazel eyes and with grey wavy short hair.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
