Raeford, N.C. — A Silver Alert issued Sunday for a Fayetteville woman was canceled Friday, according to the North Carolina Center for Missing Persons.
Edith Raynor Dunn, 57, was reported around midnight Feb. 5. Fayetteville police said they had gotten in contact with Dunn and that she is safe.
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.
