ALBANY -- Authorities confirm that an Albany Medical Center Hospital patient escaped custody on Thursday, but was tracked down 4 hours later.
Officials say the 24-year-old man was taken to a hearing at the Albany County Courthouse. When the hearing concluded, the man allegedly bolted from the scene.
The Albany Med aide who was with the patient did not go after the man, but contacted the Sheriff's department, per the medical center's guidelines. The Sheriff's office was able to track the patient down in New Scottland 4 hours after he escaped.
