PHOENIX – Authorities canceled a Silver Alert for a Phoenix man with a cognitive condition less than two hours after it was issued Wednesday morning.

Jose Trinidad Flores, 76, was spotted near 19th and Southern avenues by a citizen who saw the alert, the Phoenix Police Department said in an email. He was evaluated by the Phoenix Fire Department as a precaution.

The alert was canceled at 11:30 a.m. It had been issued by the Arizona Department of Public Safety just before 10 a.m. and said Flores had last been seen Tuesday near 35th and Southern avenues.

He was wearing a dark blue jacket, dark blue jeans and black shoes with white accents and carrying a yellow hand towel.

Flores — who is 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds, with brown eyes and gray hair and beard – has a condition that may cause him to appear disoriented or confused.

Anybody with information about his whereabouts was asked to call the Phoenix Police Department Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit at 602-534-2121, or 602-262-6141 after hours.

We want to hear from you.
