A 58-year-old paranoid schizophrenic and convicted murderer has escaped from Tatchbury Mount Hospital, Totton, and is not to be approached if found.
Daniel Rosenthal has been missing since 2:30pm yesterday, and is known to frequent areas of Southampton and the New Forest. He was last seen taking an unsupervised walk around the hospital gardens.
Police have carried out a search of the hospital, the hospital grounds and the surrounding area. Rosenthal is five feet two inches tall, has grey/brown hair with a ‘basin-style’ fringe, glasses with a metal rim, and walks with a hunch. He was last seen wearing ‘closed in’ sandals, light brown, baggy cord trousers and a long-sleeved cream-coloured shirt. A photo of him is below:
Any member of the public who finds Rosenthal is encouraged to call 999 and should not attempt to approach him, as he is potentially dangerous.
