Coquitlam RCMP are asking for help locating two Forensic Psychiatric Hospital patients who disappeared separately from the facility last week.

On Feb. 10, David Fomradas was reported missing from the facility and then two days later, Violet Miharija also disappeared.

In a release, police say Fomradas, 38, was reported on an "unauthorized absence" from the hospital's housing program located on the Riverview lands in Coquitlam, B.C.

​"Fomradas has the potential for violence when not on his medication," said the release.

In 2010, Fomradas was found not criminally responsible for a car-jacking that injured two B.C. actors.

This is not the first time he has been reported missing from the facility. 

In 2012 he failed to return to the psychiatric hospital while out on a day pass.

Police are warning the public not to approach either David Fomradas or Violet Miharija if they are seen.

Miharija, 41, was reported as missing from the hospital on Feb. 12. She was last seen wearing a green sweatshirt, green sweatpants and white running shoes.

Coquitlam RCMP are asking anyone with information about either Fomradas or Miharija to call (604) 945-1550.
