A Queenstown man who escaped from a mental health facility in Invercargill twice this week is being sought by police.

Queenstown police said Adam Crawford is of European descent, 184cm tall and of solid build. He usually lives in Queenstown and is thought to be in the area.

He was last seen wearing a black polo shirt and black Canterbury-branded running pants. There are potential safety concerns for the public and people are advised not to approach him but to call 111.
