Silver Alert canceled after 80-year-old Phoenix man found safe
PHOENIX – Authorities canceled a Silver Alert on Tuesday after locating an 80-year-old Phoenix man with a mental disability who’d gone missing.
A citizen who’d seen the Silver Alert information spotted Bruce Preston Auguh at Interstate 17 and Camelback Road around 11:45 a.m. and notified police, who safely recovered him.
Auguh had walked away from his home near 12th Street and Camelback Road around 11 a.m. Monday. He’s only lived there for about a month and is unfamiliar with the area.
Auguh is 5-feet, 2 inches tall and 115 pounds with gray hair and brown eyes. He walks with a cane and was last seen wearing a long-sleeve gray shirt, blue jeans, slippers and a red and white baseball cap.
His family said his disability may cause him to appear confused or disoriented, authorities said.
Anybody with information about Auguh’s whereabouts was asked to call the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151.
