The missing 21-year-old man who was the subject of a missing persons report by Nanaimo RCMP has been safely found.


Nanaimo RCMP are searching for a man who went missing after leaving the hospital without taking his medication.

21-year-old Joshua Yost was reported missing from the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital on November 17 and has not been seen since.

Police say Yost requires daily medication for a significant medical condition. He left the hospital without taking it, and his caregivers are extremely concerned about his well being.
