Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man wanted on an outstanding warrant.

The Halifax Regional Police/RCMP High Risk Enforcement Action Team, also known as HEAT, is looking for Michael David Patterson, 29, who was paroled from prison late last year.

A Canada Wide warrant was issued for his arrest on Monday, after he walked away from a halfway house in Halifax.

It’s believed Patterson is still in the province, although he has ties to Ontario.

He’s described as a white man, 6’4″, 230 lbs, with brown hair and green eyes and wears glasses.

Anyone with information on Patterson’s whereabouts is asked to contact Halifax Regional Police or their local police department.
