GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)_Grand Junction Police sent out a reverse 911 call Monday morning in a half mile radius of St. Mary's Hospital.
A sergeant tells 11News, it appears a patient at the hospital had a mental break down and was displaying paranoid thoughts and left the hospital. The man was spotted later in a backyard in the 300 Block of Bellaire and was asking to use people's phones.
Police searched the area looking for the man who is described as 31-years-old, 6'3" and 165lbs. He was not wearing a shirt and has numerous tattoos on his upper body and arms.
Police say charges could be pending but most of all they just want to contact the man and do a welfare check on him. They do not believe
he is a danger to anyone. He is believed to be from the Brighton area.
If you see him call 911 and do not approach him. Police do want to caution that this description could match a number of people.
