Posted: Updated:

Grady County- A happy ending to the search for a missing Grady County man.

Authorities say they've found 74-year-old Allen Byfield and he is okay. A deputy spotted him driving through Chickasha early Friday with his dog. We're told he was re-united with his family a short time later.

He disappeared on Tuesday and at one point Thursday, investigators believed he could be in the Elgin area where he has family.

Original Story:

A silver alert is in effect for a missing Grady County man.

Authorities say nobody has seen or heard from 74-year-old Allen Byfield since noon on Tuesday in Caddo County asking how to get back to Chickasha. Deputies believe he is in danger due to Alzheimer's Disease. He was last seen wearing a blue plaid flannel shirt, a green ball cap and blue jeans. He also had a gray yorkie dog with him.

Byfield was driving a 2006-four-door Dodge pickup with Oklahoma license plate number 819-GZR
