Authorities have issued a Silver Alert for a Miami County man who hasn’t been heard from since Friday.

David Nelson Ryan, of Peru, is believed to be in extreme danger and may require medical assistance, the statewide alert says.

Officials posted the alert Tuesday at the request of the Miami County Sheriff’s Department.

According to records from that agency, a deputy spoke with Ryan’s daughter on Monday afternoon. She said she hadn’t spoken with her father since Friday around 4 p.m. and that he had missed several commitments or appointments in recent days.

Ryan, 62, is described in the alert as a white male, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 240 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes and is thought to be driving a white 2003 Buick Rendezvous with Indiana license plate AWP625.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Miami County Sheriff’s Department at (765) 472-1322 or to simply call 911.
