APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) - An 80-year-old Appleton man with cognitive impairment who didn’t return from a walk Tuesday morning was found safe Tuesday afternoon soon after a Silver Alert went out.

The man, who we’re no longer identifying, was last seen at 9:15 A.M. at the intersection of McDonald Street and Grant Street. A Silver Alert was issued shortly before 2:30 and canceled about 20 minutes later.

Silver Alerts are issued for people with dementia or other cognitive impairment.
