DICKINSON, N.D. — The statewide Silver Alert for 68-year-old Raymond Payne has been canceled after authorities say he has been safely located near West Fargo through a citizen tip.

Police made the announcement through a tweet by the Dickinson Police Department around 3:30 p.m. and thanked the Cass County Sherrif's Department for their assistance.

A statewide Silver Alert had been issued at the request of the Dickinson Police Department who says Payne had been missing since Wednesday, Nov. 11.


The alert, issued at 1:28 p.m on Nov. 12., reported Payne has a medical condition that causes concerns for his safety if he is not located.

The Silver Alert system’s purpose is to locate an individual identified as a disabled adult, or vulnerable elderly adult, or a minor who has a developmental disability and has been reported to law enforcement authorities as missing, according to North Dakota Response.

Silver Alert legislation, which was initiated by the passage of House Bill 1359, was signed into law by Gov. Doug Burgum on May 3, 2017.
