Police say the man, 33-year-old Raymond Morillo, walked out of the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center on Winchester Boulevard in Queens Village about 11:30 a.m. He made the escape after the friend swapped the clothes he was wearing for Morillo’s hospital garb. After changing, the two men left the facility.

Morillo is a convicted felon and has a teardrop tattoo under his left eye, according to police. If you have information on the man’s whereabouts, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS or www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
