Vancouver Police search for Marcel Lawson who’s wanted Canada-wide

VANCOUVER Police are asking for the public’s help to find a 40-year-old man who violated his long term supervision order, and is now wanted Canada-wide.

Marcel Lawson was ordered by the courts to remain at a hospital while receiving medical treatment, but failed to do so. He has a history of committing serious sexual offences and he is at risk to re-offend.

Lawson is Indigenous, five feet eight inches tall, and weighs about 230 pounds. He has short black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black sweater with a white Under Armour logo on the chest, and was carrying a black backpack. He may walk with a limp.

Anyone who sees Lawson, or knows of his whereabouts, is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately.
