Police searching for man who walked out of hospital

INGRAM, Pa. — Police are asking for help finding a missing man who walked out of Allegheny General Hospital on Thursday and has not been seen since.

Raymond Devries, 71, was taken to the hospital by ambulance around 2:30 p.m. with symptoms of a possible stroke, police said.

He walked out of the hospital around 9:30 p.m.

According to police, Devries has heart issues and is on medication. He does not have his medication with him. He also does not have cash or his cellphone, police said.

"I don't understand how nobody noticed that he left," said Melissa Rosmus, Devries' neighbor. "I mean he walked past the nursing station. They knew he was a patient."

A spokesperson for Allegheny General Hospital told Channel 11 that Devries left on his own volition and the incident isn't being considered a breach of security.
