POLICE are searching for two Morisset Hospital patients who failed to return to the campus for medication.
Justin Dylan Foot, 34, and Justin James Edwards, 22, were reported missing on Wednesday and there are fears for their well being.
Lake Macquarie crime manager Detective Inspector Craig Davis said both men were involuntary patients. They were permitted to leave the hospital grounds and were not considered dangerous.
There were concerns for the welfare because both suffered from a psychiatric illness and did not take any medication with them.
Mr Foot was last seen wearing Hawaiian board shorts, a black shirt and a black cap.
Mr Edwards was wearing jeans and a black shirt.
Information should be forwarded to Lake Macquarie detectives on 4942 9999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
