Update (January 14): The Vancouver Police Department announced that Floyd Quincey Herbert has turned himself in and is in police custody.
Although 2019 only began last week, the search is on for yet another federal offender who has vanished this year from a Vancouver halfway house.
Federal offender Floyd Quincey Herbert, who is 47 years old, is a first-time federal offender who is serving a sentence of three years for a number of crimes, including sexual assault.
Herbert, who had been granted statutory release in June 2018, did not return to his Vancouver halfway house today (January 12).
Herbert is described as a male of mixed race Métis and black heritage. He is 178 centimetres (five-feet, 10-inches) tall and weighs 100 kilograms (220 pounds).
He has short curly hair which he usually wear pulled back and covered with a head wrap or baseball cap.
He was last seen with a short full beard, wearing a black head wrap and black baseball cap, black zip-up jacket with a blue hoodie underneath, black pants, and black runners.
Anyone who sees Herbert or knows of his whereabouts is asked to call 911.
This is the third offender who has disappeared from halfway houses in Vancouver this year.
On January 3, a Canada-wide warrant was issued for 33-year-old offender Chad Patrick Poitras who didn’t return to his halfway house on New Year’s Eve.
On January 10, high-risk sexual offender Gerald Richard McLean vanished from his Vancouver halfway house.
Vancouver police announced later the same day that he had been arrested and was in custody.
