Police are on the hunt for a dangerous man who is wanted on a Canada-wide arrest warrant and believed to be in the Ottawa area.

Ottawa police say Alex Wright is considered violent and is being sought by RCMP in Coquitlam, B.C. for failing to comply with a psychiatric disposition.

Wright has been missing since April and is described as white, 5'4", 160 pounds, with a fit build and short brown hair. He is also blind in one eye.
