Man missing from North Battleford psychiatric hospital found
60-year-old turned up in Calgary
A 60-year-old man who disappeared from North Battleford's psychiatric hospital on Wednesday has been located in Calgary.
Police have been searching for the man after he was reported missing by staff at the Saskatchewan Hospital shortly before 6 p.m. last night.
Pitts was last seen wearing a dark winter jacket, but over the last 24 hours, the temperature had dropped to about -35C.
No one knew where he was headed, but police thought he might be in the city and were searching for him all night.
There were concerns for his health, because he required medication.
On Thursday morning, the RCMP said the man had been found in Calgary. No other details were immediately available.
