Silver Alert canceled for Raleigh woman

Posted October 31, 2008

Silver Alert

— At the request of the Wake County sheriff, the N.C. Center for Missing Persons has cancelled the Silver Alert for Levora Bivens Lytle.

A Sliver Alert was issued for Lytle Friday morning.

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system notifies the public about missing endangered adults who suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments, such as Alzheimer's disease.

It allows caregivers and nursing homes to report a person missing. In the past, only a family member could report an adult missing.

    What amazes me about these silver alerts is that they often have the discription of the vehicle that the person is driving. Seems to me if they are impaired enough to have a silver alert issued they are impaired enough not to have a drivers license.

    Does that mean she was found? Or did they decide that she wasn't cognitively impaired? Either way, I pray she is safe.
