An "unpredictable" man has absconded from a mental health facility and police are looking to trace him.

Mohamed Mboob, 36, was last seen at around midday on Friday (August 25) when he ran off from care staff while on escorted leave around Archway station.

Mohamed requires regular medication which he does not have with him.

This means his behaviour could be unpredictable, particularly towards women, police said.

He has absconded previously and was found in the Paddington area.

Members of the public are advised not to approach him, but to call 999 if they see him.
