SUDBURY -- The Ontario Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement Squad is asking for help in finding a federal convict wanted for breaching his release.

Police said in a news release Friday morning, 28-year-old Jonathon Morningstar is currently serving a four year-six month sentence for several crimes including drug trafficking, assault causing bodily harm and having stolen property over $5,000. His full sentence doesn't end until Jan. 30, 2022.

  • 5'11" (180cm)
  • 228 lbs (105kgs)
  • Brown hair and eyes
  • Several tattoos including on both arms the words Honour, Loyalty, Respect and a Dream Catcher. On his left forearm, he has the phrase "Push Harder Then (sic) Them" and tattooed on his right upper arm are three clowns.

He is known to frequent the Algoma and Sault Ste. Marie area as well as the cities of Oshawa and Peterborough.

Const. Steve Sermet told CTV News Morningstar was last seen in Oshawa on Dec. 23.
