A SEARCH is underway to track down a vulnerable man who has been missing since he walked out of the Whittington Hospital on Tuesday.

John Moore, 54, of no fixed address was last seen leaving the A&E department of the Archway hospital at 5.15pm.

He had been attending hospital for treatment but left before medical staff could attend to him.
