Police are on the hunt for a serial rapist who escaped a correctional facility in Kingston, Ont., Sunday night.

Kingston Police said 51-year-old David Maracle was last seen leaving the minimum security Henry Trail Correctional Facility around 8 p.m. on the grounds of Collins Bay Institution at 1453 Bath Road.

Maracle was convicted for 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 is described by police as being of First Nations descent, 5’10” tall, 200 lbs, with short dark hair. He was wearing green/grey cargo pants, a white t-shirt, and dark jacket/sweater.

Kingston Police, Ontario Provincial Police and Correctional Service Canada have joined forces in their effort to locate Maracle.

Authorities said Maracle completed his sentence on Oct. 22, 2015 but was under a Long-Term Supervision Order (LTSO) which ensures potentially high-risk offenders are supervised for up to 10 years after a sentence expires.

Authorities are reminding the public to remain vigilant and to call 911 if anyone fits the inmate’s description.
