TEXARKANA, Texas (KTAL/KMSS) — Police in Texarkana, Texas, were asking the public for help finding a missing man from Kansas who was spotted in the Texarkana area. The Silver Alert has since been canceled.

The alert was canceled after the man was found safe in Arkansas by law enforcement after a citizen report. He was transported to a local hospital to be medically evaluated. He will soon be reunited with his family.

According to police, the 71-year-old man was last seen leaving his house in Towanda, Kansas, on June 20 to head toward Anniston, Alabama. His family says he talked to them on the phone after he somehow got turned around in Fort Worth, Texas.

The family suggested that he head back to Kansas, but the family says he did not do that.

According to the Texarkana Texas Police Department, traffic cameras read his Kansas license plate number on I-35 near San Antonio a few days ago. However, his cellphone has since been pinged in the New Boston area and on Hwy 8 toward DeQueen, Arkansas.
