Larry Erickson

GOLDEN, Colo. — A Silver Alert was discontinued Tuesday morning for a missing 78-year-old man who suffers from dementia and Parkinson’s disease, the Golden Police Department said.

Larry Erickson was last seen just after midnight after being released from the Jefferson County Jail but was found safe about 10:30 a.m.

An ambulance was requested to take Erickson to the VA Hospital for his Parkinson’s once he was released.

But police said Erickson left the lobby of the jail and the ambulance driver was not able to find him.

Erickson used a debit card just before 2 a.m. at a convenience store near Broadway and 73rd Avenue in northwest Denver.

Police did not say where Erickson was found, only that he was safe.
