MADISON — A Silver Alert has been cancelled for a 71-year-old man, missing from Madison. Richard Cochran was found safe Wednesday morning.

A Silver Alert was issued after Cochran left his home, and was last seen on the porch on Tuesday, July 18th around 7:30 p.m. He does not have access to a vehicle. Officially initially believed Cochra may be attempting to hitchhike back to the Sussex/Green Bay area.

There was concern after officials say he usually does not venture out of his home, but he has gone missing previously, when he lived in the Sussex area. At that time, he was located in Green Bay.
