JOHNSON COUNTY, Mo. (KCTV) - The Missouri State Highway Patrol has issued an endangered silver advisory alert for a missing man in Holden.

According to MSHP, 79-year-old Eugene Culbertson was last seen Friday at 8:30 p.m. in the 400 block of Northwest 1051 Road in Holden. Officials say he was confused and did not recognize his wife. He said he wanted to go to his parent’s home, but they have been deceased for many years. Culbertson has been known to travel to Whitney and Kentucky Road in Independence because his family once had a farm there.
