A "violent" Prince George man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant may be in Northern B.C. or Northern Alberta, according to police. 

Tal Kalum La Riviere, 31, is wanted for being unlawfully at large after missing his curfew at his designated residence in Prince George, according to Prince George RCMP. Attempts to find him have been unsuccessful.

La Riviere has connections in Vernon, B.C., and Grimshaw, Alta., and may be travelling in Northern B.C. or Alberta, police say.

He may be driving a blue 1994 GMC 1500 pickup truck, with licence number MY9880.

La Riviere is considered to be violent and should not be approached, police say.

According to a Global News report, La Riviere was sentenced in 2017 for his role in killing a homeless man at a local park over a drug spat. La Riviere was sentenced to five years of prison, but only served two because of time served, according to the report. He has a history of other assaults.

La Riviere is described as:

  • Metis male
  • 188 cm (6’2”)
  • 88 kg (194 lbs)
  • Brown hair
  • Brown eyes

Anyone with information, or who sees him, is asked to their local police detachment, or call 9-1-1.
