PHOENIX — A Silver Alert for a 76-year-old man who walked away from his Phoenix home was canceled Wednesday morning, a day after it was issued.

Armando Aguilar was located by police in Tempe and taken to a hospital as a precaution, the Phoenix Police Department said in an email.

Aguilar had been last seen Monday at his residence near 40th and Van Buren streets.

He has a medical condition that may cause him to appear confused and disoriented.

He’d been last seen wearing a yellow shirt, gray sweatpants, a black medical boot on his right leg and a black tennis shoe on his left foot.

Aguilar is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and 160 pounds, with graying hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Aguilar’s whereabouts is asked to call Phoenix police at 602-534-2121.
