A teenage convicted sex offender who went missing from his bail hostel has been recaptured.

Ryan Humpage, 19, who was reportedly given an 18-month jail term in August for sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl, failed to return to a bail hostel on Saturday, Greater Manchester Police said.

He was the subject of a Crimewatch appeal by Lancashire Police in April last year over fears he may have fled here at a time he was wanted on suspicion of rape. He was later arrested in County Antrim and returned to England.

On Sunday a Greater Manchester Police spokesman said Humpage had failed to return to Bradshaw House bail hostel in Bury.

On Sunday evening a Greater Manchester Police spokesman said a man had been found and arrested.
