A sex offender just released from prison is missing and police seek help finding him.

David J. Torrence, a Level 3 sex offender, was released from prison April 20 and under Washington Department of Corrections supervision until he cut off a tracking bracelet in Lynnwood Wednesday night, April 23, said Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Rebecca Hover.

Torrence had served a year-long prison sentence for failing to register as a sex offender before his release, she said.

Police recovered the GPS bracelet and box at an apartment complex in the 5800 block of 200th St. SW.

The Washington Department of Corrections issued a nationwide warrant for felony escape with no bail.

In 1995, Torrence pleaded guilty in Snohomish County Superior Court to raping a 16-year-old girl, according to the sheriff’s office sex-offender search Web site. He was sentenced to 89 months in prison.

Anyone who knows where David J. Torrence is should call 911.
