    Smithfield man, 67, subject of Silver Alert, found at Fatima Hospital
    A Smithfield man who was missing since 9 a.m. Wednesday and was the subject of a Silver Alert was found late Wednesday at Fatima Hospital.

    Howard McGhean, 67, who doesn’t speak, “appears to be fine,” Smithfield police Sgt. Orlando Braxton said at about 11:30 p.m. How McGhean got to the hospital, Braxton didn’t know, but it was old-fashioned police work, not the statewide Silver Alert network that found him.

    Braxton said that when a person is missing, officers call all the hospitals.

    Fatima Hospital in North Providence answered that he was there.
