Bremen man found safe
BREMEN — Thursday afternoon a statewide Silver Alert was issued for Noble Heyde of Bremen.
“His family reported him missing and he didn’t come home from meeting friends for coffee in town,” Bremen Police Chief Matt Hassle explained.
Heyde was last seen at 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9.
“We had several, at least two, responses from Indiana of a possible citing and at 2 a.m. Friday he was located, driving in Tipton by the local police department,” he continued.
The Silver Alert was cancelled and Heyde’s family was alerted that he was found safe and was able to retrieve him.
Hassle explained that part of the success in finding the missing man so fast was the family’s urgency to call the police when they couldn’t find him.
“Somebody driving a car can get a lot of miles very quickly so the sooner they report the better off the whole situation will be,” he stated.
Families with individuals with health or memory concerns should be sure to keep a close ear whenever those family members leave home to ensure they know where they’re headed to prevent similar situations.
“Don’t hesitate to call the local police because we have things we can implement right away and questions we can ask that might help locate them,” Hassle stated. “Most of the time, when people are located, they just didn’t tell the family and they’re at a friend’s house.”
