EUGENE, OR -- A 34-year-old psychiatric patient was reported missing Thursday from the Oregon State Hospital in Junction City. Officials do not consider Peace Dawn Wickham a danger to himself or others. Wickham was admitted to the state hospital almost a year ago from Lane County, after he was found guilty except for insanity on charges including assault and unlawful possession of a weapon. 


He was last seen at the Laurel Hill Center in Eugene. Staff lost sight of Wickham when he ran from a treatment group just before 2 p.m., Thursday. 


Wickham is African-American, 6'1" and 215 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. When last seen, he was wearing a blue sweatshirt, blue jeans and gray sneakers. Wickham also has tattoos on both forearms and a large afro. 


UPDATE: Peace Dawn Wickham was found unharmed by the Eugene Police Department at approximately 9:00 am today and was taken to the Lane County Jail to await transport back to the Junction City hospital campus.
