Tal Kalum LaRivere has not been seen since Feb. 2 when he failed to meet his court-imposed curfew.
Police are asking the public to be on the lookout after a country-wide arrest warrant was issued for a “violent” Prince George man.
The warrant for being unlawfully at large was issued after Tal Kalum LaRivere failed to meet his court-imposed curfew on Feb. 2. He has not been heard from or seen since, and has not returned to his designated residence in Prince George.
Prince George RCMP have now issued a public warning, asking people to help locate the 31-year-old.
LaRiviere is described as a Metis man, about 6-foot-2, weighing 194 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. Police say he has connections in Vernon, B.C. and Grimshaw, Alta. and could be travelling in the northern parts of either province.
He is believed to be driving a blue 1994 GMC 1500 pickup with the B.C. license plate MY9880.
“Do not confront LaRiviere,” said police in a news release. “Lariviere should be considered violent.”
In 2017, LaRiviere pleaded guilty to manslaughter for the August 2015 beating death of his friend Jason Hardy. The pair both struggled with addiction and the physical altercation stemmed from a disagreement over the purchase of drugs.
LaRiviere was sentenced to five years in prison but was only required to serve two due to time already served.
Anyone who recognizes LaRiviere or his vehicle should contact 911 immediately.
