Missing man found


An Electric City man who went missing Monday night, prompting authorities to issue a “Silver Alert,” was found Tuesday afternoon and is safe.

Donald S. Fisher, 69, hadn’t been seen since about 7 p.m. Monday, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday morning in a “Silver Alert,” a system used in the United States to disseminate information about missing persons — especially senior citizens with conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease — in order to aid in locating them.

Fisher had been suffering from recent strokes and a brain surgery and does not speak well, the alert issued by the sheriff’s office said.

He had left without his medications, wallet or keys.

The sheriff’s office canceled the alert about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, saying Fisher had been found.
