Lakewood Police are searching for Nick R. Medina, 38, a sexually violent predator, who has vanished from his residence at 5601 W. Colfax Ave., No. 7.
Medina was released from the Colorado Department of Corrections in mid-June, and due to his status as a SVP (sexually violent predator) he is required to notify Lakewood Police of his residence.
Medina gave the Colfax Ave. address to police on June 13. As part of standing operating procedure, police often check the addresses of SVP to make sure they are living at the address they gave.
Earlier this month police checked the address and found he had left without notifying any authorities. He has not been seen or heard from since.
Medina’s original crime and conviction was for the sexual assault of a child. He has also been known to be involved in gang activity. There are two warrants for his arrest.
The police is asking anyone who sees or has any information on Medina to contact them at 303-987-7111. He is considered dangerous and the public should not attempt to contact him.
