Joshawa Leundre Clark, 21, ran from the hospital about 1:40 a.m., according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report. He was admitted to the institution on a court order because he was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic.

He is described as a black male, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, with black hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, red socks and orange shower shoes.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts are asked to call the sheriff’s office at 706-821-1080.
