Franklinton, N.C. — Authorities canceled a Silver Alert for a missing Franklinton woman early Thursday.
Emergency officials did not say whether Crystal Lynn Morin, 26, had been found. The alert for her was issued Wednesday evening.
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.
