Durham, N.C. — A Silver Alert was canceled Monday for a 32-year-old Durham man.
The alert was issued Sunday evening for Michael Pythoon Taylor.
Developed in 2007, Silver Alert is a system that 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.
