    I would love to know from each of those who actually found all the people involved in Silver Alerts just how important that Silver Alert actually was? I suspect that few, if any, Silver Alerts in North Carolina have actually had any bearing on whether the missing person was found.

    oh good grief, not again.
    it's like crying wolf time after time after time. yes they are missing, but you can NOT cry alert EVERY time some one goes bye bye. They just about always show back up.
    Hope this one does too, but come on already.
