A suspected stroke victim went missing from the Whittington Hospital on Saturday.

Police are concerned for the welfare of the man, thought to be in his 50s, who was picked up by an ambulance at Finsbury Park station at about 6pm but left the hospital in Magdala Avenue, Archway, before treatment at 6.35pm.

Transport for London staff said his face “had dropped” indicating a possible stroke.

He is described as black man, 5 feet 7 inches tall, largely bald with some dark hair at the sides of his head. The partial facial paralysis identified by TfL staff may be noticeable. He was wearing a grey t-shirt, with a ‘Seattle 85’ logo in pink lettering.

Anyone who may know the identity of the man, or who may have seen him, is asked to call police on 101 quoting ref CAD-8398-21Jun.
