Police are appealing for information on two high-risk offenders who have fled a Christchurch address in breach of their parole conditions.

Ivan Andrew Campbell, 46, left the Salisbury Foundation yesterday morning.

He is believed to be in the company of Jaydon Galland, 18, who has also absconded from the address.

Campbell has multiple convictions for sexual offences and is currently on parole after an 11-year prison term.

Both men are deemed to be high-risk offenders and should not be approached.  

Campbell was jailed in 2001 after chaining a teenage boy up in a wardrobe, tattooing and sexually abusing him.

During his trial in the Auckland High Court in 2001, Campbell was described by Detective Sergeant Adam Lough, officer in charge of the case, as a "calculating, manipulative sexual deviant who preys on teenage boys".

The Hells Angel associate held the 14-year-old boy captive in a wardrobe with shackles and chains, plied him with alcohol, performed a series of indecencies on him, poured hot wax on his body and branded his lower back, causing second-degree burns.

The boy escaped after being able to phone his family when Campbell left the house.

Campbell was also found guilty of sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy over a two-and-a-half month period in 1991.

Shortly after he abused his first victim, Campbell moved to Australia and went on a fire-lighting spree which included the destruction of the central business centre of Beaudesert, west of the Gold Coast.

In 2009, the Department of Corrections made a last-hour bid to keep Campbell behind bars overs fears he would reoffend upon release.

Police said the two men are believed to have links to Christchurch, Ashburton and the West Coast, and may have left the Christchurch area.

Campbell is described as European, 177cm tall and of medium to thin build.

He has extensive tattoos on his face, neck, and arms.  

Galland is described as European, 177cm tall and of medium build.

Any sightings of the men should be reported urgently to police by phoning 111 or Christchurch police on 363 7400.
