Police release photo of convicted sex offender who escaped from facility in Kingston yesterday

Kingston police and the O-P-P are searching for a repeat sexual offender who walked away from the Henry Trail Correctional Facility.

Police say 51-year-old David Maracle has been missing from the federal community-based residential facility since last night.

Maracle was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in 1987, raping and choking a common-law partner in 1997, and that same year kidnapping a 14-year-old Brantford schoolgirl by gunpoint and repeatedly raping her.

He was under a long-term supervision order following completion of his sentence in 2015.
