UPDATE: The Nova Scotia Health Authority says patient Ali Ahmed Ahmed, 35, has been located. He was safely returned to hospital Tuesday afternoon.
The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) is looking for a missing patient, who failed to return as planned to a Dartmouth hospital.
The health authority would not reveal which hospital the man is a patient of, but said it is in the Dartmouth area.
According to the NSHA, Ali Ahmed Ahmed, 35, is considered a risk to himself and others and that risk “increases with the length of time he is away from treatment.”
Ahmed Ahmed is described as an African-Canadian man, with brown eyes and a gap between his front teeth. He is six-feet-tall, weighs 219 pounds and was last seen wearing a black jacket over a blue shirt, black jeans and a pair of grey and black sneakers.
NSHA is asking anyone who spots him to contact their local police.
