Alberta Health Services (AHS) says a computer hard drive that contained the personal health information of about 650 patients has been missing since August.

It says the disappearance could be linked to a theft at the lab on Aug. 5, a holiday Monday, but the drive wasn’t discovered missing until a few weeks later.
