Vancouver police say they have arrested Gerald Richard McLean, a high-risk sex offender they were seeking after he failed to return to a half-way house in East Vancouver.

McLean, 48, is a two-time federal offender serving a long-term supervision order following a two-year sentence for sexual assault.

Police reported that  McLean was last seen near East Cordova Street and Main Street wearing a dark blue baseball cap, light-coloured shirt and blue jeans.

Sgt. Jason Robillard says the man pictured on a recent advisory, has now been arrested.
