Wilson, N.C. — Police canceled a Silver Alert Thursday for 33-year-old Cindy Lee Walston, who went missing in Wilson.
Authorities did not release any other information.
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.
