Manitoba RCMP are searching for two inmates from The Pas who escaped Monday night.

Manitoba RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in locating the following escaped inmates:

  • Xander William Tardiff, 19, is 5’11” and weighs 180 lbs.
  • Kelly John Castel, 21, is 5’09” and weighs 135 lbs.

Originally the RCMP received a report of three missing inmates from The Pas Correctional Centre, located on 3 Street East, in The Pas, at 6:45 p.m. Monday.

Officers attended and were advised that the three inmates were last seen at 6:40 p.m. and escaped on foot from the Correctional Centre moments later.

At 8:05 p.m., one of the escaped inmates was located and safely taken into custody.

The Pas and surrounding communities can expect an increased police presence and roadblocks in the area as the search continues.


Additionally, the RCMP sent out a Dangerous Person Alert advising residents in The Pas, Flin Flon, and nearby areas about the risk these two could cause to the public, adding that residents in those areas should lock their doors and window and report anything suspicious.

Both escaped inmates should not be approached. If you’ve seen them or have any information on their current whereabouts, please call The Pas RCMP immediately at 204-627-6200.
