Coquitlam RCMP are seeking the public's assistance in locating a missing Riverview Hospital patient who has not been at the facility since last month.

Kelly Pickwell, who did not return to the institution by the required time on May 9, has gone missing before but staff said it is unusual for her to be gone this long.

The 42-year-old Caucasian woman is described as 5'2" tall and weighing approximately 177 lb., with short, red hair and blue eyes.

She is known to frequent the Downtown Eastside.

Coquitlam RCMP were unable to provide a photo or a description of the clothes she was wearing at the time of her disappearance.

Riverview staff said they would like her to return to the facility so she can continue to receive the psychiatric and medical treatment she requires.

Anyone with any information about Pickwell's whereabouts are asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550.
