Another patient of the Homerton mental health centre has escaped during supervised leave five months after Samuel Lee, who served time for rape, and a year after Lerone Boye, a convicted killer, who was at large for three months.
Shane Hart ran away on a group tour and was last seen in Brooksby Walk, Homerton, at around 3pm last Wednesday.
The escapee is 54 year’s old and has been in the facility since his conviction in 1994 for false imprisonment and taking a child without authority.
While Hart is not considered dangerous, the police have warmed the public not to approach him and to call them immediately if seen as he may be unpredictable.
A police spokesman said: “These patients tend to escape from Mental Health centers quite often, while they tend not to be dangerous to the public they tend to be difficult to track, We at the Met will do everything in our power to bring the patient back into the facility.”
Hart is described as white, 5ft 8in with blackish grey hair, last time he was seen he was wearing a black jacket, mustard shirt and cream trousers. Police urge anybody, with information on the whereabouts of Hart, to contact them on 999 immediately.
