Toronto police are asking for the public’s help in tracking down a psychiatric patient who walked away from CAMH on Thursday afternoon.
Police say that 47-year-old Daniel Kent was last seen around 1:30 p.m. in the area of Queen Street West and Ossington Avenue.
Kent is described as standing six feet, one inches tall, and is 170 pounds with light brown hair, brown eyes, and a beard. Police say he uses two canes to get around.
He was wearing a yellow sweater, brown coat, and black leather Adidas running shoes when he disappeared.
“If located, do not approach and call 911 immediately,” investigators said in a news release.
Police say Kent was being held at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health under a “warrant of committal,” which is issued by the Ontario Review Board when a person is found not criminally responsible in court.
On the heels of several disappearances last summer, including a man who vanished and somehow boarded an international flight, CAMH’s president announced an external review of its processes around passes and privileges for patients.
