89-year-old Roy Brown and 82-year-old Arminta Brown of Evansville, Indiana, have been found safe after the Evansville Police Department put a silver alert out for them late Saturday night.

The married couple had originally left their house in their silver Chevy Sonic around 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, and were declared missing after they did not return home.

"Their family advised that they both suffer from dementia along with other medical issues and could be in danger," a release from EPD said.

They were finally found just after 8:00 a.m. on Sunday morning near Fares Avenue, driving around.

A sergeant with Evansville Central Dispatch said Roy Brown was driving and did not realize the seriousness of the situation and was looking for a place to change their oil, while Arminta Brown did not speak.

A family member came to pick them up.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
