An Alzheimer’s patient from Upper Holloway has been missing since walking out of hospital on Saturday and police fear he may be looking to fly to Jamaica.

Officers are appealing for the public’s help in finding Winston Haynes, 72, who was last seen at about 2pm in West Middlesex Hospital, Hounslow, with a cannula still in his arm after being treated for a chest infection.

Winston, 72, is a slim, black man with short greying hair. It is believed he is wearing dark clothing and likely to be wearing a black trilby hat.

It is possible he is attempting to travel to Gatwick Airport to fly to Jamaica, or he may have become confused and is attempting to travel to Heathrow.

There is no indication he has left the country at this time but police are concerned for his safety and wellbeing.

Anyone who has seen Winston or who knows where he is should call police in Islington on 101.
