HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – Authorities are asking for the public’s help to locate a man who wandered away from a hospital Sunday morning.

Henrico Police said 42-year-old Kevin Martin was last in the area on Monument Avenue and Willow Lawn Drive around 9 a.m.

Lt. Richard Cosby with Henrico Police said Martin's family had taken him to an area hospital over "concern for his mental health and medical status."

After family members left the facility they later learned Marin "had left without staying for evaluation and treatment," according to police.

"The family and Henrico Officers have been checking the area for much of the afternoon," Cosby said. "At this point he could be most anywhere in the Richmond Metro area."

Martin is described as a white male. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a blue jacket and a gray, beanie-style winter cap.

Anyone with information is asked to call Henrico Police at 804-501-5000.
