Silver Alert

— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Tuesday morning for a Cumberland County man.

James Elvy Clark, 72, who was reported missing from his Hope Mills home, returned home Tuesday, authorities said.

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.

    Praying for him and his loved ones. Frightening when this happens to you or someone you love - happened in our family.

    God bless.
