Vancouver Police are searching for Jason Anthony White, a convicted high-risk sex offender who is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant. White, 45, is also a person of interest to investigators in an attempted home invasion of an elderly woman in the Oakridge neighbourhood Thursday night.

White was deemed a dangerous offender after being found guilty of breaking into the home of a 74-year-old woman in Nanaimo in February 1994, where he sexually assaulted and robbed her.

White appealed the dangerous offender designation and was eventually released on a long-term supervision order.

Police have asked anyone who sees White, or knows of his whereabouts, to not approach him and call 911 immediately.

White is said to also use the name Jason Eugene Rindero.
