ONAGA — Authorities are looking for a 67-year-old Onaga man who ran an errand on Friday morning and never returned home.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation issued a Silver Alert for Melvin Potter, Onaga Chief of Police Dan Costlow said.
The man reportedly has dementia and other medical issues that have caused concern for authorities.
A Silver Alert is similar to an Amber Alert, Costlow said — but for an elderly person rather than a child.
Potter is described as white, with thinning gray hair, and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a red flannel shirt with brown patches on the elbows. He was also wearing brown boots and brown leather belt. His belt buckle said “Oklahoma.”
Potter was driving a red and silver Dodge pickup with a red topper.
Anyone with information should contact Pottawatomie County dispatch at 785-457-3353.
