Update: Both men have been located as of Wednesday, CHP said.

Authorities searched for an elderly Bay Area man reported missing since Sunday evening and another missing since Monday morning, with California Highway Patrol issuing a Silver Alert for each.

As of Wednesday, both a 79-year-old man and an 84-year-old man were located and the Silver Alerts were deactivated.

A Silver Alert is issued by CHP to assist investigating law enforcement agencies when a missing person is age 65 or older and suffers from developmental or cognitive impairments.
