"On July 14, 2019, 36-year-old Michael Neville was reported to have eloped from the Daly Pavilion (Trail Hospital), after he failed to return to the facility at the expiry of his weekend pass," Wicentowich said in a press release Monday morning. "Neville is described as 173 cm (5’8”), 75 kg (165 lb), with blond hair and blue eyes (photograph attached). Neville has recent, visible injuries to his face.
