Vancouver Police are asking the public’s assistance in helping locate a federal sex offender who failed to return to his halfway house on July 2.

Jonathan Cardinal, 29, is considered a high-risk sex offender currently serving a long-term supervisory order following two violent sexual assaults in 2010.

He is bound by several conditions including a curfew and Corrections Canada has now issued a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest.

Cardinal is Indigenous, 5’8” tall and 165 lbs. He has short brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo on his upper back, and was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt, blue jeans, white sneakers, a backpack and black-rimmed glasses.

Anyone who sees Jonathan Cardinal, or knows of his whereabouts, is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
