Silver Alert canceled for Durham man who left hospital

Silver Alert

— Authorities canceled a Silver Alert Wednesday for a Durham man who went missing from a local hospital.

The alert was issued Tuesday night for 47-year-old Richard Cornell Davis.

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.
