CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. — A spokesperson with the City of Crawfordsville confirmed a man who had been missing since Sunday has been found. 

Arthur Ash, 86, was found safe Wednesday and is undergoing a wellness check.

Ash was last seen June 26 around 8 p.m. when police and family believe he walked away from an area near the 600 block of Englewood Drive in Crawfordsville.

Police were told Ash suffers from dementia and has mobility issues.

Amber Alert vs. Silver Alert: What's the difference?

There are specific standards a person's disappearance must meet in order for police to declare an Amber Alert or a Silver Alert.                                        

Amber Alerts are for children under the age of 18 who are believed to have been abducted and in danger. Police also need to have information about a suspect and their car to issue an Amber Alert.                                       

Silver Alerts are for missing and endangered adults or children. They are much more common for missing people. It was not until last year when the standards for Silver Alerts were expanded to include children.      

In both situations, these alerts must be issued by police.
