MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) — A Silver Alert issued by Murfreesboro police early Tuesday morning for an 82-year-old man with multiple medical conditions was cancelled after he was involved in a rollover crash in Humphreys County.

According to police, Roy Ellis Alexander left his home in Murfreesboro around 8 p.m. Monday to go to the KFC on Old Fort Parkway, but he never returned home.

The department issued a Silver Alert because the 82-year-old suffers from narcolepsy, high blood pressure and other health problems that require medication.

Police cancelled the Silver Alert just before 6 a.m. They said Alexander had been located after the vehicle he was driving crashed and rolled over along Highway 70 near Blacktop Road.

Alexander was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
