Meet the sexually violent predators of Lakewood -- including search subject Nick Medina

The Lakewood Police Department has issued an all-points bulletin for Nick Medina, a sexually violent predator who was released from prison last month and vanished a few weeks later.

Turns out Medina isn't the only sexually violent predator in Lakewood. There are seven others who are required by law to keep local authorities -- and by extension, the public -- abreast of where they're living. Get information about where they are, and learn more about the search for Medina below.
