INDIANAPOLIS — A 64-year-old man missing from Indianapolis' west side has been located, IMPD said late Sunday.
On Friday, police had asked for the public's help in locating Robert Lee Ward Jr., who had not been in contact with family since May 10. He was last seen in the 1000 block of Groff Avenue, near 10th Street and North Tibbs Avenue.
IMPD said on May 29 that Ward had been located.
"Detectives are appreciative to members of the community for their assistance in helping locate him," IMPD posted on social media.
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.
