Police are looking for Raymond Morillo, who reportedly was convicted of manslaughter, after he fled from a Queens Village psychiatric facility.

Police are searching for a man with a reported violent criminal history who escaped from a Queens psychiatric facility Tuesday.

A friend was visiting Raymond Morillo, 33, a patient at Creedmoor Psychiatric Facility, on Winchester Boulevard, in Queens Village, about 11:30 a.m. when the two swapped clothes and Morillo fled the building, cops said. His friend also left the facility.

Authorities  describe Morillo as 5 feet 11 inches tall, 215 pounds with a tear drop tattoo under his left eye, according to police. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, white sweater and tan pants.

Morillo was imprisoned for manslaughter in 1999, and was transferred to the facility from jail in December, according to the New York Post.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
