Silver Alert

SUSSEX, Wis. (WBAY) – Authorities in Waukesha County are looking for a missing 70-year-old man who may have dementia.

A Silver Alert was issued statewide around 2 p.m. for Richard Cochran. Authorities did not provide a photo of him. He’s described as a white man, 6’1″ tall and weighing 188 pounds. He’s balding with brown hair and blue eyes. He wears eyeglasses.

Cochran left his Sussex home at 8 a.m. Saturday. He’s driving a 2011 blue Hyundai Accent with a Wisconsin military plate of 517 LE.

Authorities say Cochran has a very predictable routine and is always with his dog. A neighbor became worried after she didn’t see him this morning but saw the dog in Cochran’s home.
