Police have warned the public not to approach Glenn PicotPolice handout

Police have warned the public not to approach a man who disappeared from a hospital in Kent late last week. Glenn Picot, 34, was reported missing from Maidstone Hospital on the afternoon of Friday 23 (October) after leaving his ward to visit the nearby Tesco supermarket.

Police believe he may be heading for Jersey, where he has relatives.

Mr Picot is described as 5ft 9ins tall, slim, with brown eyes, cropped brown hair and a long beard. He has tattoos on his back, scars on both arms, on his head and above his left eyebrow, and piercings in his left ear.

Inspector Jerry Prodger said: "Kent Police is growing increasingly concerned for Mr Picot's welfare due to the fact that, while away from hospital, he is not getting the care he needs."

Inspector Jody Gagan-Cook added: "Mr Picot is vulnerable. If you see him do not approach him and call the police."

Anyone who sees Mr Picot should not approach him and should call 999 or contact the appeal line on 01622 604100, quoting reference 23-1093.
