Carrboro, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons has canceled a Silver Alert for Roger Vestal Williams, a 67-year-old man from Carborro.
The alert was issued after Williams went missing from Crescent Green Assisted Living Facilities, at 624 Jones Ferry Road, late Wednesday.
Authorities did not provide any other details about the case.
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.
