Be on the Lookout for...?

08.00am: ABC radio news just reported that Queensland Police are asking for the public's help in locating a man who didn't return from a routine release from a mental health facility in Wacol, Brisbane. He apparently went out to the airport & flew to Sydney.

The situation can't be too bad though because they didn't issue a warning to not approach this guy (see update). Not that you'd know who to avoid, because the description was the most useless I've ever heard; "Police describe the man as approximately 180cm and caucasian in appearance". Nannas up & down the eastern seaboard are going to be busy calling Crimestoppers today.

8.30am: None of the major aussie news sites online are running the story. Hopefully one of them will run a photo or sketch before the day is out.

9.00am Update: The story develops. The 42yo man is now described as being "of caucasian appearance, approximately 180cm with long sideburns and a trimmed beard". Police have now warned people not to approach him and to call 000 if you see him.

10am Update: Story not reported on radio news on the hour; maybe they've found him. Still no mention on any Australian news web sites either way.

Midday Update: Story not reported on radio news on the hour, but is now on ABC News Online.
