Update January 5, 2020: RCMP say this man has been located. 

Mounties are asking for the public’s help finding a patient who failed to return to a forensic psychiatric facility in Coquitlam, BC.

Adam Yvan Gorges is unlawfully at large, police say. He was reported missing January 3 at 6:30 pm, and is now wanted on a Canada-wide warrant.

Colony Farm Forensic Institute, where Gorges was being held, is a facility for people who have been found not criminally responsible for a crime or unfit to stand trial due to a mental disorder. It also holds people who have been temporarily transferred from prison.

Police describe Gorges as having long brown hair, hazel eyes, a moustache, and a beard. He’s about 5’10” and weighs roughly 175 pounds. He was last seen wearing a teal coloured toque, a white shirt, a black jacket, and gold boots.

Gorges may present a risk to himself or the public, Coquitlam RCMP said in a news release.  They advise people not to approach him and to call 911 immediately if they see him.

If you have information about where Gorges may be, you can call the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2020-314.
