COQUITLAM — Another patient has gone missing from the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam.
A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for 58-year-old Kurt Derksen.
Coquitlam Mounties said the patient was out on a pass Thursday at his brother’s home in Richmond when he left the house.
Derksen is described as a Caucasian man standing five-feet nine-inches tall with short brown hair and blue eyes.
He has a full beard and is possibly wearing glasses.
Police are asking the public not to approach Dersken, but rather to call 911.
Derksen is the second patient to go missing from the hospital in the last two weeks.
Charles Albert Hansen, 60, was reported missing on Nov. 22, but returned to the hospital a couple of days later.
Several patients have gone missing from the hospital this year, including David Fomradas, who went missing in May and is still at large.
