Quebec police search for man who left halfway house

Police are searching for Mishta Napeu Mckenzie, 30, who left a halfway house in June.

The Surete du Quebec (SQ) is asking for the public's help to find a man from Sept-Iles who has been wanted for nearly three months. 

Mishta Napeu Mckenzie, 30, was supposed to be staying in a halfway house in Quebec under a long-term supervision order, but he left on June 13 without permission, police say. He has not been seen since.

The SQ suspects he could be in Sept-Iles or de la Minganie.

Mckenzie stands 6”3', weighs approximately 269 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of two teardrops located near his left eye.

The SQ is asking anyone who sees Mckenzie not to approach him and to call 911.
