Vancouver police say a high-risk sex offender has disappeared from a halfway house just hours after he began serving a 10-year long-term supervision order.

A warrant has now been issued for the arrest of 45-year-old Keith Caouette.

Police say he is a two-time federal offender who has served 14 years in prison for kidnapping and sexual assault with a weapon.

He began serving a long-term supervision order early Thursday, left the halfway home at about 5:30 p.m., and failed to return in time for curfew.

Officers say the green-eyed, aboriginal man poses a high risk to reoffend and anyone who sees him is asked to call 911.

Caouette is six feet tall, 300 pounds, with long brown hair, a full sleeve of tattoos on his left arm, a skull band on his right wrist, and three skulls on his right bicep.
