An elderly man reported missing with a statewide Silver Alert was found safe in Tavernier this weekend.
The 82 year old from Port St. Lucie was at the Circle K store at the 92 mile marker Sunday at 2 a.m. The clerk at the store called the Sheriff’s Office because he recognized the man from a Silver Alert he’d seen on the Florida State Lottery gaming machine in the store.
When Deputy Michael Claudy arrived, he found the man tired and disoriented. Deputy Claudy was able to contact the man’s family and he and his vehicle were returned home safely.
