A 42-year-old man from Warwickshire is believed to be in Blackpool after fleeing hospital.


Police said they are 'extremely concerned' for the welfare of Lee French after the 42-year-old disappeared from a hospital ward in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.

Lee, who has been missing for more than a week, is described as vulnerable and was last seen at George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton at around 10.30am on Saturday June 22.

He was last seen wearing jeans and a dark green parka coat with a fur trim hood. He usually wears his hood up.
