Edmonton Police Service are seeking the public’s assistance in locating two patients who ran away from Alberta Hospital Edmonton Tuesday morning.

According to EPS, it was reported around 10 am, Tuesday, April 28, 2020, that two patients, a 40-year-old man, and a 30-year-old woman, ran away from Alberta Hospital Edmonton located at 17480 Fort Road.

“The pair were reportedly on a supervised walk on hospital grounds when they suddenly ran away from the group they were with, crossed 18 Street northeast of the hospital and got into a waiting grey coloured SUV that fled the area eastbound at a high rate of speed,” said a release from EPS.

The pair have been identified as Reyhan Paul Jones, 40, and Bailey Gabriel (Armstrong), 30, and police say both require medication and as such, there are concerns for their well being.

“Police and hospital staff continue to search for the pair who are currently arrestable for contravention of disposition. Both are considered to be violent and dangerous and should not be approached,” reads the release.

Investigators believe the pair are likely in the Edmonton or Spruce Grove area, although there is a possibility they may travel to other areas of the province including Grand Prairie and the surrounding area.
