Ontario provincial police are hunting 25-year-old Fern Joyal, a federal prisoner who allegedly breached his statutory release.
Joyal is described as a Caucasian male, standing five-feet-nine-inches and weighing 190 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.
The man is heavily tattooed. Most notable are his neck tattoos. He has “HNIC” on the left side and “SHELBY” on the right. On the centre is a skull holding two guns.

On April 1, Joyal left a half-way house in Kingston and did not return. Global News reports that he has been known to frequent Kingston, North Bay, Toronto and Temiskaming Shores areas.
