Police search for man with intellectual disability

Police are appealing for public assistance to help locate missing Footscray man John.

The 68-year-old was last seen outside the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Parkville when he went outside for a cigarette at 1.18pm on Tuesday.

CCTV shows John walking down Grattan Street at the Flemington Road intersection with a walker.

John was taken to hospital the day prior where he had a moonboot on his left leg for a broken ankle.

He was last seen wearing brown pants and black Velcro shoes.

John is known to frequent the Footscray and Melbourne CBD areas.
