Police searching for a patient who's gone missing from Clacton Hospital say they're growing increasingly concerned for his safety. 66 year old David Royle had been in hospital for two months and was on a home visit when he disappeared.
He was last seen on Friday in the Boley Drive area of the town. Officers say there's been no sign of him since despite an extensive search, and are asking the public to help them find him.
Mr Royle is described as white with shoulder length brown hair. He was wearing a blazer and a flat cap.
