Police have issued a warning that a female sex offender who has been released from prison might be residing in, or frequenting, Abbotsford.

Const. Ian MacDonald said Audrey Elizabeth Jean Black, 34, is of concern because her offences involved children five and under.

This is the second public warning that police have issued this year about Black.

The first was provided by RCMP in Chilliwack, where Black resided after her release from jail on May 6. She had served a four-year sentence for sexual offences against young children in Saskatchewan, and for publishing child pornography.

Conditions of her release included that she not attend any public park, playground, recreation centre or other place where children were expected to be.

"Her method of operating is to offer babysitting and child care/daycare services and communicating online with children," police said at the time.

Members of the community reported on two occasions that Black had breached that condition, and she was sent back to jail on May 16. She was released again on Thursday.

She is described as 6' 1", 220 pounds and with black hair and blue eyes.

Her conditions of release include: no contact with anyone under 16 (unless for a commercial transaction), no activities or employment involving contact with children under 16, not attending any place that children are expected to be present, and not possessing any electronic device that connects to the Internet.

Anyone observing Black violate any of those conditions is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225.
