SEATTLE, WA - Authorities in Seattle have found a high-risk sex offender who recently fled Canada.
    
The Seattle Police Department says 48-year-old Michael Sean Stanley was found in downtown Seattle on Thursday and was ordered to register as a sex offender. He wasn't arrested because Canadian authorities have declined to try extraditing him.
    
Seattle police say Stanley could be arrested if he fails to register as a sex offender.
    
Stanley has a long history of sexual offenses against women and children and had been missing since October 1st, when he cut off his electronic-monitoring bracelet around the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary.
    
Canadian authorities warned U.S. counterparts that he might try to cross the border, but U.S. officials allowed him in after determining he was a U.S. citizen and not the subject of an extraditable arrest warrant.
