It takes an especially brutal sex crime to qualify a sex offender as a "predator." The Florida Department of Law Enforcement currently lists eight sexual predators who have absconded -- meaning they're not living at the address in the sex offender registry.
Based on the FDLE website, the predator who's been on the loose for the longest time is Enrique Soto, who vanished in 2005. We'll tell you about Soto and the seven other predators like him, after the jump.
Soto was supposed to be living in the town of Wimauma in Hillsborough County, the same county where in April 1999 he was convicted of sexual battery against a child under age 12. Soto is 48.
Our news databases didn't turn up any more details on Soto's case.
The next predator comes from South Florida.
