WARD 'LOST' OAP.

HOSPITAL chiefs are investigating after a 90-year-old Alzheimer's patient went missing and ended up almost 175 miles away.

Jonathan Hastilow-Sands sparked a police hunt when he disappeared from an in-patient ward in Bolton on Saturday.

Mountain rescuers were even called in to search local moors. Mr Hastilow-Sands was found 11 hours later when he hurt himself at a bus station in Bath, Somerset, and was taken to Bristol Royal Infirmary.

His neighbours in Little Hulton, Salford, described the pensioner as an "independent" man who "kept himself to himself".

A spokesman for the Royal Bolton Hospital said: "We will investigate the incident."
