Silver Alert

— Authorities issued a Silver Alert Tuesday morning for a missing Butner man who has a cognitive impairment.

Jody Browning, 36, was reported missing from 1600 E. C St.

He is described as white, 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing 177 pounds. He has blue eyes and blonde hair.

Authorities did not know where he might be headed.

Anyone with information on Browning's whereabouts is asked to call Butner Public Safety at 919-575-6561.

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system quickly notifies the public about missing endangered adults who suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments, such as Alzheimer's disease.

It also allows caregivers and nursing homes to report a person missing. In the past, only a family member could report an adult missing.

    At least they didn't wait 9 days to report him missing.

    If that's him in the picture, his eyes are blue and hair is red/blonde. The story describes him differently.
