TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Kansas authorities have canceled a Silver Alert for a missing Topeka man who has traveled to Nebraska and Missouri in the past.

According to the Shawnee County Sheriff Office, 82-year-old Jimmy D. Roberts was found safe just after 1:00 am Sunday.

Prior to the cancellation of the Silver Alert, Roberts was last seen around 6:00a.m. Saturday morning at his home in Topeka, in the 6800 block of NW Elmont Road.

He possibly suffers from dementia or Alzheimer’s, which prompted the sheriff office to issue the Silver Alert.

Roberts is approximately 5′10″ tall, 125 lbs., and is bald with brown eyes.

He drives a gold 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup truck, with Kansas license plate 947HXY. It has an aluminum truck box, spray painted silver rear quarter panels and a Harley Davidson sticker on the back driver’s side window.

In the past, he has been located in Lincoln, Neb. and St. Joseph, Mo.
