A man who vanished from a Glasgow hospital this morning could be at risk of having a seizure.

Police launched an appeal to trace Steven Douglas, who was last seen by a member of the public on Balornock Road near Springburn Park today at 8.30am.

He had previously been reported missing from Stobhill General Hospital.

Police are concerned Steven could be at risk of seizure if he fails to take his medication, as he has been missing in freezing conditions for a number of hours.

He is described as white, 5ft 6 inches and of an athletic, muscular build.

He has short, dark brown hair and goatee style facial hair.

When last seen, he was wearing a navy bubble jacket with orange inside the hood, grey jogging bottoms and grey Nike trainers. 

Police say he may have been in possession of a black rucksack earlier in the morning, although no longer has it with him.

Inspector Gareth Griffiths, of Baird Street Police Station, said: "Steven has been missing for a number of hours now and concern for him is growing due to the inclement weather and the possible risk of him having a seizure if he fails to take his medication.

"He may also appear disorientated or confused.

"We are now looking for assistance from the public. If you believe you have seen Steven or have any information, please contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident number 1261 of December 1."
