CBC News:

Mylvaganam Vaasuhan

Mylvaganam Vaasuhan, 31, wandered away some time during the baseball game he had been watching at Rogers Centre with others from the Whitby Mental Health Centre, police said Wednesday.

In 2001, the man was found not criminally responsible on grounds of diminished mental capacity for sexual assaults on two girls, police said.

Police said Vaasuhan takes medication for schizophrenia, paranoia and to control his sexual behaviour, but didn't have it with him when he wandered away.

Police said he has brown skin, brown eyes and receding black hair. He is about five feet seven inches tall and weighs between 170 and 190 pounds, they said.

At the time of his disappearance, he was wearing a black leather jacket, brown shirt, brown pants and white shoes with red trim.
