Flin Flon RCMP say they have tracked down a man in dire need of immediate medical attention who abruptly left the Flin Flon General Hospital earlier today.

Thirty-two-year-old Leon Benjamin Custer of Pelican Narrows had been last seen in a hospital gown at the hundred stairs in Flin Flon at 9:30 a.m.

Mounties issued an advisory asking for the public’s help.

The patient was subsequently spotted 10 km north of Creighton by a passing motorist, who heard the broadcast, and brought to the Creighton RCMP Detachment.

The RCMP say emergency medical personnel were summoned to make sure he recevied the care he required.
