A Silver Alert has been issued for an 81-year-old man missing from Cuba, Kan.

On Tuesday, Charles “CL” Adams went missing from his home in the rural Cuba area of Republic County. According to a news release from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Adams recently had a stroke.

The Republic County Sheriff’s Office located Adams’ van, a white 2002 Dodge Caravan, in the area of K-148 highway near his home. Law enforcement agencies and volunteers have searched the area, but haven’t found signs of him.

Adams is described as a white male, standing 5 feet and 6 inches tall, with gray hair and hazel eyes. He weighs about 165 pounds. He was wearing overalls at the time he disappeared.

The Republic County Sheriff’s Office requests the public’s assistance locating anyone who may have seen Adams since Tuesday, or who has information regarding his whereabouts. Anyone with information is asked to call the Republic County Sheriff’s Office at (785) 527-5655.
