Renewed appeal for man missing from Croydon hospital

MISSING: Mark Ricketts

OFFICERS IN Croydon are continuing to appeal for information on a man who is missing from Southleigh Community Hospital in Croydon.

Mark Ricketts, 52, was discovered to be missing at approximately 4am on Tuesday, 18 September. He was a patient at the hospital receiving treatment for his mental health.

Ricketts is described as a black male of stocky build, 6ft 2inches tall with black, greying hair.

He requires regular medication which he does not have with him and this could affect his behaviour.

When last seen Ricketts was wearing grey bottoms and a dark baseball cap.

Detective Constable Louis Murphy of Croydon police said: "I'm appealing to the public to contact us should they have any information on Ricketts' whereabouts. At this stage, we are unsure of where he may have gone since he absconded from hospital in Croydon.

"Ricketts has a history of violence, and so members of the public are advised not approach him but to call 999 immediately."

For an immediate sighting of Mark Ricketts, please call 999. Anyone with information as to his whereabouts, or who may have seen him, is asked to call Croydon Police on 101 and quote 18MIS037624.
