Police are appealing for help to trace a man missing from Whittington Hospital.

Timothy Peter Smith, 66, was receiving treatment for tuberculosis at the hospital in Archway but left at 6am yesterday (Monday) before the full treatment could be rendered. He has not been seen since.

Efforts to find him are continuing, police said, but warned members of the public not to approach him as “he may still be contagious” because his treatment was incomplete.

Anyone who sees him is requested to call call the London Ambulance Service and police via 999.
