The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) is asking for the public’s help in locating a patient who has gone missing from a Dartmouth hospital.

The NSHA says Marcel David Lawrence, 27, is a risk to himself and others, with that risk increasing the longer he is away from treatment.

The health authority describes Lawrence as a black man who has brown eyes and short, dark hair. He stands six feet tall and weighs 232 pounds.
