Authorities at the East Coast Forensic Hospital in Dartmouth are looking for a 50-year-old patient who is missing.
The Capital District Health Authority reported Thursday that Vladimir Trubman has been away longer than he's allowed after an "indirectly supervised" trip into the community. Officials said they believe he may be travelling out of the province.
Police are now looking for him.
"His risk to himself and others increases with time away from medication and treatment," read a statement from the Capital District Health Authority.
Trubman has brown eyes, thinning brown hair and stands around five feet 11 inches. He weighs about 240 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the police.
