NSHA asks for help to locate missing patient

Marcel David Lawrence

The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) is asking for help to locate a missing patient from a Dartmouth hospital.

Marcel David Lawrence is described as African-Canadian, standing 6' tall and 232 pounds with brown eyes and short dark hair.

The 28-year-old has several tattoos on his face and neck.

He was last seen wearing black shirt, red and black hoodie, grey pants, red & black shoes, and a black jacket with fur trim on hood.

The NSHA says Lawrence's risk to himself and others increases with the length of time he is away from hospital.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
