He has ties to Montreal Lake and Weyakwin.

Smith is described as six feet tall and 205 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and numerous tattoos.

Some of his tattoos include: “#5” on his left hand; a skull and cross on his right forearm; a skull with a ribbon on his left chest area; and the word “mom” and a cross on the right side of his neck.

At the time he left the facility, Smith was wearing grey sweatpants, a dark long sleeve shirt, a plaid jacket, and a black Nike hat, RCMP say
