Calgary, AB,

Wanted Calgary man believed to be in BC

UPDATE: Wyatt READER has now been located and arrested.


We are asking for the public’s help to locate a Calgary man accused of domestic offences who we believe has fled to British Columbia.

Wyatt READER, 21, of Calgary, is wanted on Canada-wide warrants for assault causing bodily harm, uttering threats, forcible confinement, and five counts of failing to comply with court orders.

READER is charged in connection with a domestic incident that occurred on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020, during which it is believed a female was violently assaulted.

We have been looking for READER since the incident but now believe he has left Calgary and is living in his vehicle somewhere in central BC. He was last seen the afternoon of Monday, Oct. 5, 2020, in Kamloops and has also been recently spotted in the Salmon Arm area. It is possible that he is heading for the Lower Mainland.

He was driving a black, 2020 Kia Sorrento SUV. His licence plate is unknown as the vehicle is not registered and may be using either stolen or cloned plates.

Anyone with information on READER’s whereabouts is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or your local police. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:

TALK: 1-800-222-8477

Police agencies across Canada work together closely to try to locate and arrest people with outstanding warrants. When a person with warrants connected to a serious crime leaves Calgary, we continue to track them and alert local police in places we believe they may be staying. We also regularly work with partners across the country to locate and find people who flee to Calgary to avoid arrest at home.

This cooperation helps ensure people are brought to justice no matter where they go and helps protect all communities across the country from people who may pose a risk to public safety.
