A Norman man has been found safe in Texas, several hours after police issued a Silver Alert for him.

Robert Herndon went missing Monday afternoon when he left Norman to go to Tinker Air Force Base.  Family members said they received a call from the 86-year-old man around 2:45 p.m. from the 4 Corners Gas Station in Crescent, Oklahoma, and gave him directions to Northwest Expressway in Oklahoma City.

Herndon was located in Amarillo, Texas, early Tuesday morning.  Police said he is uninjured and safe.  His family is headed to Amarillo to bring him back to Oklahoma.

Police said Herndon has memory loss and they believe he was confused and got lost. His family said he is unfamiliar with most areas outside of Norman.
