CAMH patient found after going missing on supervised walk

A man who disappeared from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health on Friday afternoon was found on Saturday.

Toronto Police say 35-year-old Gashawbeza Gashaw Kefene had last been seen during an escorted walk on Friday around 12:30 p.m.

Police said the man posed a “public safety concern.”

They didn’t say where or how the man was found.

Kefene was the latest in a spate of patients to disappear from CAMH, after three men who were detained at the facility walked away in July.

Two were later brought back into custody, including one man with a lengthy history of sexual offences against strangers.

Zhebin Cong was found not criminally responsible for a fatal 2014 stabbing.

Police have said Zhebin Cong, found not criminally responsible for the 2014 death of his roommate, left the country on July 3 and remains at large.

CAMH has announced an external review of procedures for granting passes and privileges as several patients have managed to walk away recently. An internal review is also underway.
