Durham, N.C. — A Silver Alert for a 53-year-old Durham man was canceled Wednesday evening a little more than an hour after it was issued.
The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons issued a Silver Alert around 9 p.m. for Labaron Admon Murray, who is believed to be cognitively impaired.
The alert was canceled shortly before 10:30 p.m. after Murray was found safe, police said.
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.
