Missing mental patient 'at risk'
Police are appealing for any sightings of a psychiatric patient who went missing from hospital on Teesside.

Isaac Douglas, 36, left the Hutton unit at St Luke's hospital in Middlesbrough on Thursday and failed to return.

It is believed he could be in the Thornaby area of Stockton, but also has links to Newcastle.

He is without his medication and may harm himself, according to Cleveland Police. He is white, with a lazy left eye and a scar under his eyebrow.

He has short, dark brown hair and was wearing a blue fleece, black shirt with grey stripes and blue Lacoste track suit bottoms, which are muddy.

Anyone with information should contact Cleveland Police.
