Silver Alert canceled for West Nashville man with dementia


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A Silver Alert has been canceled after a missing 90-year-old man from West Nashville was found near the downtown area.

Metro police issued the alert Tuesday morning for William Horner, who has dementia.

Officers said he left his West Nashville home during the night in a 2003 Ford Expedition with faded red paint.

Horner has family in Texas and Oklahoma, so relatives were concerned he could be headed toward that part of the country.

Police said Horner was found safe around 8:30 a.m. on Lafayette Street, just south of downtown Nashville.
