PLAINFIELD, Ind — The Plainfield Police Department said a missing 34-year-old man was found safe Friday.

Police said Marcus Evans was "located safely" and said, "Thank you to all of our followers for sharing our posts to help us locate this individual."

Evans was last seen Friday, Sept. 23 shortly before 12:30 a.m. on a Ring camera leaving a home in the 1800 block of Wedgewood Place, near County Road 900 East and Bradford Road.

A Silver Alert was issued shortly before 11:30 a.m. and was canceled around 12:40 p.m.

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.
