Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for a high-risk offender who is at large and suspected to be in the Calgary area.

Police say Louis Henry Bear, 42, failed to return to his halfway house Wednesday.

Bear has a lengthy history that includes convictions for attempted murder, weapons, forcible confinement, criminal negligence causing death and dangerous driving.

He is described as five feet five inches tall and about 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Bear was previously convicted in the hit-and run deaths of Grant Liu, 26, and Brian Suh, 29, both of Calgary. The two men were standing beside parked cars outside the Whiskey nightclub on Aug. 4, 2007, when Bear ran into them with a stolen vehicle.

Police ask that anyone who does spot Bear should not approach him but call police immediately.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234 or provide the tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
