The Grady County Sheriff's Office has canceled a Silver Alert for a 74-year-old man who disappeared Tuesday.

A Silver Alert was issued for Byfield Tuesday when drove away from Chickasha. Because he has Alzheimer's disease and takes dementia medication, his family was very worried about his safety.
