PHOENIX — A Silver Alert was canceled after a 77-year-old man who went missing from his Mesa home on Wednesday morning was found safe.
William “Bill” Bynum had been last seen leaving his home in the area of Southern Avenue and Ellsworth Road around 10:50 a.m.
He was located not far from home in the afternoon. Authorities, who canceled the alert around 4:30 p.m., said he was disoriented and dehydrated but was otherwise in good condition.
He left home on foot and did not have his wallet or cellphone on him.

Bynum also has difficulty speaking and may be hard to understand.
