Silver Alert for missing Kansas man canceled

Donald Eugene Cook

A northeast Kansas county has canceled a Silver Alert for a 75-year-old man who had been missing since Wednesday afternoon.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s office says Donald Eugene Cook, who was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, checked himself into a Kansas City area hospital on Thursday. No further details were immediately available.


The county issued the alert earlier Thursday, saying Cook hadn’t been seen since he left his home in Princeton Wednesday afternoon. His family was concerned because he did not have his medication.
