A statewide Silver Alert has been issued for a man who is missing and believed to have dementia or some other cognitive impairment.

Meyer has a tattoo on his left forearm of a palm tree, and a tattoo of a heart with the words "mom and dad" on his right forearm.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a gray sweatshirt, and a black winter jacket. Meyers is driving a Gray Ford Fusion with the Wisconsin license plate 592-URN.
