Man missing from hospital 'aggressive if challenged'

Thames Valley Police is asking for the public’s help to find a man who went missing from a hospital in Berkshire.

Public told don't approach man missing from secure unit

Firstly I would like to ask members of the public not to approach John if they see him, but to phone us immediately. We do not believe he has access to a mobile phone or money at this time so I ask that residents of Berkshire are vigilant and keep an eye out for him. We have some information that John can become aggressive if challenged, so please phone 101 if you see him, or 999 in an emergency.

– Det Insp Stuart Bosley, Newbury Force CID

Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 and quote URN 769 of 5/7.
