Police in Hackney are appealing for help to trace a vulnerable man with schizophrenia, who has gone missing without his medication.

Marcus Bvute, 31, was last seen at around 11am yesterday morning at his home in Marsh Hill, Homerton.

Police have warned people not to approach him if he is sighted, but to call 999.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “Officers are concerned for Marcus’s safety and wellbeing as he suffers from schizophrenia and does not have his medication with him.

“Marcus’s is known to frequent the Homerton area, but does have access to money so could easily travel further.”
