Police are looking into whether or not the man, who was in his 40s, matches the description of a man a London hospital called about hours earlier. The hospital told police the man had failed to return, and attempts to reach him at his address were unsuccessful. 

Police say they're not investigating the case as "terrorist-related," and the Duke and Duchess were not home at the time.
