      Update (August 2): The Vancouver Police Department announced that police, with the help of a police dog, located Dale Rolland Alexander hiding in a wooded area of Stanley Park after 8 p.m. on August 1. He was arrested and is in custody.


      Vancouver police are seeking to track down a high-risk offender who is unlawfully at large.

      Dale Rolland Alexander, who is 47 years old, didn’t return to his halfway house today (August 1) after he was last seen in the morning.

      Alexander is a two-time federal offender who completed a jail sentence for sexual assault, kidnapping, and uttering threats.

      He is described as a Métis male who is 178 centimetres (five-feet, 10-inches) tall and weighs 79 kilograms (175 pounds).

      He was last seen wearing a black longsleeved shirt, black track pants, and grey runners, and was carrying a grey backpack.

      Anyone who sees him or know of his whereabouts is asked to call 911 immediately.
