A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for a high-risk sex offender originally from the East Kootenay.
58-year-old Randall Hopley never returned to his halfway house in Vancouver on Saturday.
He was last seen around 3 p.m. wearing a black coat, black pants, and a black hat.
Hopley was sentenced to six years in prison in 2013 after abducting a three-year-old Sparwood boy in his sleep.
Hopley was slated for a new trial today for breaching the conditions of his long-term supervision order.
