(Jesse Wayne Goodale / Nanaimo RCMP)

A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for a Nanaimo man who was last seen leaving his mandated stay at the Salvation Army Community Residential Facility downtown Victoria.

The warrant, issued by Corrections Service Canada, is for 29-year-old Jesse Wayne Goodale for breaching his statutory release at the halfway house.

According to Nanaimo RCMP, Goodale began his stay at the facility on July 4th and was last seen leaving the building on July 22nd at approximately 9:00 p.m.

Before his arrival at the community facility, he had been originally sentenced to a four year and ten-month sentence for Aggravated Assault.

According to police, there is a strong possibility that Goodale has returned to Nanaimo as he has a number of friends and family in the city.

Goodale is described as an Indigenous man standing 5’ 11” and weighs approximately 220 pounds. He has short dark hair, brown eyes, and a goatee. He also has a number of prominent tattoos, including one on his left hand that spells ‘WEED’ and ‘M.H.’ and one on his right hand that reads ‘CROWN’. He also has a tattoo on his right leg that spells MOB, and a chest tattoo that says ‘MICHELLE HAMM MEMORIAL PIECE’.

Anyone who sees Goodale is asked to call 911 and not approach, as he is considered violent.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
