A man who was admitted to hospital on Thursday after attempting to self harm has gone missing – and police are appealing for the public’s help in finding him.

Shane Gooding, 29, was admitted to Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford, and was last seen at the hospital at about 10pm on Friday when he went outside for a cigarette.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Shane has a history of depression and his family and friends have serious concerns for his welfare. Medical staff are also concerned for his wellbeing as Shane requires ongoing treatment.”

Shane, of Collier Row, is white and of slim build.

He was last seen wearing blue or black coloured jeans, a white hooded jacket with a zip at the front and white trainers.

Shane also has two tattoos - one saying “Jack” on the lower arm and one saying “Mum” on his upper arm.

Anyone who has seen Shane or knows of his whereabouts should call Romford CID on 101, or contact Missing People on 116 000.
