A Canada-wide arrest warrant has been issued for a psychiatric patient who has been missing since Thursday following a day-pass visit to his brother's Richmond home.

Kurt Derksen, 58, was permitted to be at his brother's home, but while his brother was preoccupied, Derksen left some time between noon and 2:30 p.m.

Derksen is a patient at Colony Farm Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam, and is now wanted for being unlawfully at large.

He is described as a Caucasian male, about five feet nine inches tall, 200 pounds, with short brown hair and blue eyes. He has a full beard and might be wearing glasses.

If you see Derksen, do not approach him, but instead call 911.
