CSC said it "immediately contacted" the Sûreté du Québec for Matawinie.

Alexson is 5'7" and weighs 183 pounds. He has a medium complexion, brown eyes and black hair. "He has one scar on his right hand and one on his left arm, as well as several tattoos on both arms, chest and back," according to the CSC.

"He is currently serving an indeterminate sentence for second-degree murder, arson-damage to property, escape from lawful custody, prison breach with intent, assault against a peace officer and break and enter with intent," the statement reads.

According to its website, the Waseskun Healing Centre "is a non-profit Aboriginal organization affiliated with Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) and Correctional Service of Quebec (CSQ), whose goal is to facilitate the holistic healing of Aboriginal offenders in order to foster their successful re-entry into their families, communities and nations."

Anyone with information on David Everett Alexson's location is asked to contact the Sûreté du Québec RCM Matawinie.

The CSC said it is investigating the circumstances of the incident and is working with the SQ to locate the Alexson as soon as possible.
