Durham, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert for a Durham man on Wednesday.
The alert was issued Tuesday afternoon for 34-year-old Pythoon Anthony "Tony" Taylor.
Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert is a system to quickly notify the public about missing endangered adults who suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments.
It also allows caregivers and nursing homes to report a person missing. In the past, only a family member could report an adult missing.
