Silver Alert canceled for Cary woman
Posted January 25, 2011
Raleigh, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert on Tuesday for a Cary woman.
The alert was issued in October for 41-year-old Andrea A. Rheault.
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.
