What to do when someone you know goes missing

RICHMOND, Texas (KTRK) -- A Silver Alert issued for 90-year-old Elray Matzke has been canceled after he returned to his Richmond home on Saturday, authorities said.

Matzke, diagnosed with a cognitive impairment, returned home by himself safely at about 6 a.m., hours after the missing persons alert was issued.


Authorities are searching for a 90-year-old who disappeared in Fort Bend County overnight, according to deputies.

Elray Matzke, diagnosed with a cognitive impairment, was last seen in the 3200 block of Chimney Swift Lane in a black, 2017 GMC Yukon with a Texas license plate JJZ6122 at about 12:37 a.m.

Deputies describe Matzke as a white man who is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 185 pounds, has blue eyes, and is bald.

Matzke was last seen wearing a black coat, a white t-shirt, maroon pajama bottoms, and no shoes, officials said.

Law enforcement officials believe Matzke's disappearance poses a credible threat to his own health and safety.

If you have any information about Matzke's whereabouts, authorities urge you to contact the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office at 281-341-4665.
