In a statement released Tuesday evening, police said 45-year-old Anthony Murdock was last seen at around 2:20 p.m. in the Ossington Avenue and Queen Street West area — the main intersection just located at the entrance to the CAMH grounds.

Toronto police told Global News on Wednesday morning that Murdock, who went missing from the same area in 2017, is a patient at CAMH.

Police confirmed he “was in the charge of CAMH” and was out on an accompanied pass when he walked away from the facility and did not return.

“He was found not criminally responsible for an indecent act in 1998. When our officers received the notification that he had walked away, they assessed him as a potential risk and we issued his photo along with the notice re-risk,“ police said.

Murdock was the fourth patient at CAMH, who was found not criminally responsible for a charge, to go missing in July, including one who managed to leave the country.
