EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Police say a 34-year-old Oregon State Hospital psychiatric patient is missing after attending a treatment group in Eugene.

Oregon State Police say Peace Dawn Wickham was reported missing Thursday afternoon when hospital staff members assigned to escort Wickham lost sight of him when he ran from the group.

Police say Wickham is not considered to be a danger to himself or others, but people shouldn’t approach him.

Wickham was admitted to Oregon State Hospital in November 2016. He was found guilty except for insanity on assault, unlawful possession of a weapon and felon in possession of a restricted weapon charges.

Wickham is described as African-American, 6 feet 1 inch tall, 215 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a blue sweatshirt, blue jeans and gray sneakers.

Anyone who sees Wickham should call 911 or the Oregon State Police at 800-452-7888.
