Authorities on Saturday canceled a Silver Alert issued Friday evening for 22-year-old Kemiosha N. Woodard, of Rocky Mount. 

They did not release any further information. 

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.

    Is it too much to ask to let us know if the woman is black or white? Sheesh.

    Praying they are ok. Wonder what kind of "cognitive" problems she has when she still has access to her children.
