— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Friday morning for a missing Greensboro woman. 

The alert was issued for Rosetta Chandler West about 1 a.m., and it was canceled about eight hours later at the request of the Greensboro Police Department. 

No other information about West was available. 

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system quickly notifies the public about missing endangered people 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.

    Scubagirl, if they don't give a description, then the person is black.

    I understand protecting privacy and all but HOW is the public to help if they don't know what a person looks like?
