Dunn, N.C. — Authorities on Thursday canceled a Silver Alert for a 55-year-old Dunn woman who went missing from Betsy Johnson Regional Hospital Wednesday.
The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled the alert for Christine Marie Duval Thursday at 9 a.m.
Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system 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.
