A Silver Alert for a missing 86-years-old man has been canceled.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said Friday morning that Robert Waltke was found in Gold Canyon, hours after he had been reported missing.

Dispatchers received a call about a man yelling for help around 3 a.m.. A deputy arrived on scene and identified the man as Waltke. He was then evaluated by medical staff.

He was cold and confused, but unhurt. He has been returned to his home and family, said PCSO.

The Silver Alert was issued Thursday evening after Waltke failed to show up for his doctor's appointment in Mesa
