ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. - A statewide Silver Alert was declared Sunday evening for an 80-year-old Fort Wayne man who went missing earlier in the day.
Officials canceled the alert about 1 p.m. Monday, though they didn't say whether the man had been found.
Indiana State Police (ISP) said the Allen County Sheriff's Office was investigating the disappearance of Thomas Sodano, who was last seen at 8:30 a.m. Sunday. ISP said he is believed to be in danger and may require medical attention.
Officials said Sodano is roughly 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs roughly 185 pounds. He has medium-length brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a blue T-shirt and casual shoes. He has a tattoo of a bird on each side of his chest and a faded tattoo on his underarm that says "mom and dad."
