A vulnerable missing pensioner from Hackney who was travelling around on the London bus network for the past two days has been found.

Ralison Antoine , 84, who is diabetic and suffers from dementia, was last seen at his home in Bethune Road, Stoke Newington on Tuesday morning.

He was due to travel to his niece’s house in Newham that evening but did not arrive.

Mr Antoine was found today at University College Hospital, near Euston.

Officers and his family were concerned as they did not know if he had medication with him.

Mr Antoine uses a Freedom bus pass which had been used on numerous North London bus routes during the 48 hours he was missing.
