KENOSHA shooter Kyle Rittenhouse has vanished, with prosecutors seeking a fresh arrest warrant on Wednesday claiming the 18-year-old has secretly moved house in violation of his $2million bail terms.

Wisconsin authorities are allegedly unable to find Rittenhouse, who was charged with shooting three people, killing two of them, during a protest over police brutality in August in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The teen, who was released on a $2million bail paid for by supporters in November, allegedly failed to inform the court of his change of address within 48 hours of moving.

In a motion filed with Judge Bruce Schroeder, Kenosha County prosecutors asked that a new arrest warrant was issued, and Rittenhouse’s bail be increased by $200,000, the Chicago Sun Times reported.

Rittenhouse is charged with multiple counts, including homicide, in connection to the protests in August in Kenosha. 

He is accused of fatally shooting Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz, 26, during a protest after Kenosha police shot black man Jacob Blake. 

Rittenhouse’s lawyer Mark Richards argued that his client shot the men in self-defense.

Photos of Rittenhouse from the protest showed him walking the streets of Wisconsin with an AR-15 weapon.

According to WISN, prosecutors on Wednesday said a notice mailed to Rittenhouse’s Antoich home in Illinois in December was returned unclaimed on January 28.

The U.S. Postal Service said the letter was delivered but returned as the intended recipient – Rittenhouse – didn’t match the person living at the address. 

When Kenosha Police detectives Benjamin Antaramian and Martin Howerd travelled to the address, they spoke with a man named Aiden Earl, who said he had been living there on a rental lease since mid-December.

Rittenhouse’s violation of his bond, in failing to inform the court of his new address, was paired with his “minimal incentive to comply with his bond conditions”, prosecutors said. 

“He posted no money so he has no financial stake in the bond,” they wrote. 

“He is already facing the most serious possible criminal charges and life in prison, so in comparison, potential future criminal penalties are insignificant.”

Last month Rittenhouse was pictured wearing a “Free as f***” shirt while drinking beer at a bar in Wisconsin with his parents.

During his visit to Pudgy’s Pub l, Rittenhouse, 18, posed for pictures while flashing the “OK” sign, which white supremacist groups use to mean”white power”.

After taking photos with two men in his group, Rittenhouse entered the bar in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, and was “loudly serenaded” by five adults in his crew, according to Kenosha County prosecutors. 

Wisconsin allows people under 21 years old to drink alcohol if they are accompanied by a parent, guardian or spouse who is old enough to drink.

Due to Rittenhouse’s behavior at the bar, prosecutors were seeking several changes in his bond. 

They wanted to prohibit Rittenhouse from making public displays of white power or gestures tied to white supremacy, and bar him from having any contact with Proud Boys or other white supremacist organizations or militia members. 

Prosecutors also sought to prohibit Rittenhouse from consuming or possessing alcohol or going to any establishment where alcohol is served.
