The Nova Scotia Health Authority is asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of a missing patient to contact local police.
Ali Ahmed Ahmed, 35, failed to return to a Dartmouth hospital.
Ahmed is an African-Canadian man who has brown eyes and a gap between his front teeth. He is six feet tall and weighs 219 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black jacket over a blue shirt, black jeans and a pair of grey and black sneakers.
In a press release, the health authority stated, “The patient’s risk to himself and others increases with the length of time he is away from treatment.”
