The Hamilton Police Service is appealing to the public for help identifying a “vulnerable” senior who has been in a Hamilton hospital since the end of October.

On Sept. 23, Halton Paramedics and Halton Police transported the male to a Halton hospital after finding him in medical distress. He received treatment and was discharged from hospital on Oct. 29, and transported to a shelter in the Hamilton area.

“It was determined the shelter was not the best location for him and he was brought to a Hamilton hospital, where he has been ever since,” said police. “Local police and healthcare providers have been working to identify the male and have exhausted all efforts.”

Police say the man has no known connections to the Hamilton area but may be known within Halton and Greater Toronto.

He responds to the name, “Sam” and was known to frequent GO Station properties in the Halton and Etobicoke area prior to his initial hospitalization.

If you have any information that would assist police in identifying the senior, call 905-546-2023.
