A search is underway in British Columbia for a man who walked away from a minimum-security prison while serving time for a firebombing that killed two children in Calgary.
The Correctional Service of Canada says Michael Sheets was reported missing from the Mission Institution on Saturday.
The 48-year-old prisoner is serving a sentence of more than 14-years for manslaughter and arson for his role in the firebombing that killed a six-year-old boy and his four-year-old sister in 2004.
A release from the correctional service says an arrest warrant has been issued for Sheets, who may also use the name John Hala.
Sheets escaped from a Vancouver Island prison in 2015 but was quickly recaptured and was granted day parole last August.
A search also continues for another Mission Institution inmate — John Mackenzie — who was serving a life sentence for second-degree murder when he did not appear for a head count on Aug. 7.
