Northern Door County Man Found Safe After Silver Alert

An 80-year old northern Door County man, the subject of a silver alert issued by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Wednesday, was found unharmed in Green Bay. The man was last seen at about 12:30PM Wednesday. The Door County Sheriff’s Office got involved after it was asked to do a welfare check on the county man Thursday. They checked his home and several northern Door County locations that he frequented, but could not find him or his vehicle. Earlier, the officers were told that the missing man had indicated he needed a part for his car and might drive to Green Bay to find it. The Brown County Sheriff’s Department was brought into the search and a silver alert requested. At about 3:40 in the morning Friday, a sergeant with the Brown County Sheriff’s Department informed local authorities that the missing man had been found on the west side of Green Bay near Fleet Farm, confused as to where he was. He told the deputy that he traveled to Green Bay to get a part for his vehicle and somehow ended up in Chicago. He tried to return home, but became lost. Officers from both sheriff’s departments met at Bay Shore Park where a transfer was made. The man was taken to his Door County home where a friend was waiting to look after him and the silver alert was lifted.
