A 70-year-old Inman man with dementia who had been the subject of a Silver Alert on Monday has been found safe in central Kansas, authorities said.

The Inman Police Department reported Tuesday that Richard W. Andrus was located overnight in Rice County.

This statewide Silver Alert for Andrus subsequently was canceled.

The Inman Police Department early Monday requested that the Kansas Bureau of Investigation issue the Silver Alert for Andrus, whose whereabouts were unknown at the time.

Prior to the Silver Alert being issued, Andrus had last been seen around 9:30 a.m. Sunday at his home in Inman, a town of about 1,400 people in McPherson County. Inman is located about 10 miles southwest of the city of McPherson.

Andrus was last known to be driving a red 2013 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with a Vietnam Veteran tag, heading in an unknown direction.

Rice County, where Andrus was located, is immediately west of McPherson County.
