Allan Aklok, the man who was reported missing from Stanton Territorial Hospital on Sunday, has been found safe.
Police say he was found shortly before 3:00pm Tuesday in a wooded area along the Frame Lake Trail.
He was “tired and hungry when located, but otherwise was uninjured,” according to a statement from Yellowknife RCMP. He’s since returned to the hospital.
Aklok was on an escorted leave pass when he fled from his escort Sunday night. He’s the second patient to go missing from Stanton this year.
In late March, a patient named David Nataway was reported missing from the hospital. He was found within hours of police warning the public of his absence.
