Escaped serial rapist Benny Sela was reportedly spotted by a taxi driver in the area of the Beit Lid Junction, located on the old coastal road near Netanya on Sunday morning.
Police ordered residents in the Netanya area to be on alert for Sela, who escaped police custody on Friday and is considered highly dangerous to the public.
It is the first time police have asked residents outside of Tel Aviv to be on alert for Sela.
