A 31-YEAR-OLD man is missing after absconding from a mental health unit in Lewisham.

Daniel Henry was last seen in Deptford at around 6pm on Tuesday (July 16) but also has links to other parts of Lewisham as well as Lambeth, central London and Camden.

He is described as a light-skinned black man, around 5ft 11in to 6ft tall, and when last seen he was wearing green tracksuit bottoms and a grey tracksuit top.

Officers are increasingly concerned as he requires medication which he does not have in his possession.

Members of the public are advised not to approach Mr Henry and should call 999 in the event that they see him, quoting ref 13MIS021787.

He absconded from the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust's Ladywell Unit, which is in the grounds of Lewisham Hospital, on July 3. 

But police have only just appealed for the public’s help to find him.
