Silver Alert issued for 32-year-old Cary man

Posted July 8, 2012

— Cary police were searching Sunday for a 32-year-old man who is believed to be suffering from a cognitive impairment. 

The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons issued a Silver Alert for Hannibal Henry Houze around 1:30 p.m. Houze was last seen at an apartment on Hyde Park Court, off Maynard Road, authorities said.

Houze is black, with short black hair and brown eyes. He is 6-foot tall, about 150 pounds and could be wearing a long wig, police said. It wasn't clear where Houze was headed when he went missing.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should call the Cary Police Department at 919-469-4012.

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.
