Story host Duncan Garner has persuaded violent offender Casey Cowan to turn himself in to police.

Cowan, who disappeared after cutting off his electronically monitored anklet on Thursday 3 September, met with Garner today to discuss his disappearance and the case.

Cowan was serving a six-month home detention sentence for violent offences, but told Garner that worries about his family and alleged broken promises by Child, Youth and Family prompted him to remove his monitoring bracelet.

During the exclusive interview, Garner convinced Cowan to turn himself in to police and accompanied him to the Auckland Central Police Station.

See the full interview with Cowan on Story, tonight at 7pm on TV3.
