According to Ashley Rains, Public information officer with the Mobile Police Department, a man who was in custody escaped from Springhill Medical Center wearing only his hospital gown.
A student at Spring Hill College said, “The school did tell us he was on campus a few hours ago. That was when we were put on lock down. The rain jacket is still there, and I heard that that rain jacket is what mobile police department uses to take them away when it’s raining.
According to officials, they have not yet identified the missing man. He was not being held by the Alabama Department of Public Safety, Mobile police or the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, said officials.
