Hamilton Police are looking for the public’s assistance in locating an individual who was on a day pass and failed to return to the St. Joseph’s Forensic Psychiatry Unit.
On September 12, 2020, Dakota Summers was granted a day pass to leave the grounds of St. Joseph's Healthcare, West 5th Campus with the condition to return on the same day at 6:30 pm. Summers failed to return at this time and subsequently advised hospital staff that he would not be returning as required. A Form 49 for his return to the facility was then issued pursuant to the Mental Health Act and the Hamilton Police were notified and an investigation was initiated.
