— Raleigh police on Wednesday suspended their search for a 35-year-old man who is believed to be cognitively impaired. 

The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled its Silver Alert for Brett Jerome Freeman around 8:30 a.m. 

It wasn't clear if Freeman had been found safe and no other information was available.

Developed in 2007, Silver Alert is a system to quickly notify 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.
