Police are asking for public help to locate a 68-year-old Wallaceburg man who went missing after leaving London's Victoria Hospital.

Frederick Sutherland was last seen Monday as he left the hospital at 800 Commissioners Road East shortly before 1 a.m.

He left of his own accord, without being discharged.

Sutherland was alone at the time, and his direction of travel is unknown. His family and police are concerned for his welfare.

He is described as a white male, about 5'10" tall with a slim build, grey hair and a moustache.

He was last seen wearing light blue jeans, a blue plaid shirt and tan-coloured shoes.

Police say he had a significant amount of medical dressing on his neck and was walking with his head tilted to the right.

Anyone with information is asked to call the London Police Service at 519-661-5670.
