Please tell me the meaning of this sentence (usage of until late):

Since Jason went to the market in search of you, I have not seen him until late this evening.

My interpretation is that Jason was seen after evening.

    I see the OP's sentence, and no source is given for their examples. Apparently the dictionaries find their example sentences automatically these days. The one in question is a bit of a dud.

    I didn't see him until late this evening - I didn't see him all day, but late this evening I did (finally) see him.
