Silver Alert issued for Cary man

Posted August 1, 2011

— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons issued a Silver Alert Monday for a missing Cary man.

Jeremy Brendan Cid, 32, is believed to be suffering from dementia or some other cognitive impairment.

Cid is described as a white man standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes with a tribal tattoo on his right shoulder and right forearm. He also has tattoos on his left arm.

He was last seen at a home on Murray Glen Drive and is believed to be driving a blue 2008 Jeep Wrangler with North Carolina license plate number YPA-9066.

Anyone with information about Cid should call the Cary Police Department at 919-469-4012.

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.

    To all of you speculating and talking bad about someone you do not even know just remember that Karma finds us all eventually. Jeremy is a good person. I served in the Navy with him and came to know him very well. He's a sweet man and I'm sure, like every other good person, he's made some mistakes in his life. Since only the people involved in his dilemma know for sure what happened it is ignorant and callous to just jump to conclusions. Maybe you should stop and think about what you're writing before you just offer up an opinion....I'm so sick of people just opening their mouths without first having all the facts! Just because you have an opinion about something it doesn't mean that it needs to be heard especially given the current circumstances. So to the few of you that are bad mouthing a person you don't even know and who might potentially be in peril, you better hope you don't find yourself in a similar situation one day!

    There are many people who love Jeremy. I am praying for his family and hoping he will come home safely. To all of those people that do not know him and are so ready to just him and the whole situation. I hope you remember that this is someone's child, brother, and friend. If you don't have something good or helpful to say the best thing you can do is keep your mouth shut!

    He IS a good guy. The charge of burglary is very misleading. There are extra circumstances that are, frankly, no one's business, but all involved. Please be sensitive to people in a time of crisis. Thank you.

    He was also arrested for burglary, which means breaking into someones house when they are home. So he's a good guy?

    If I'm not mistaken, there is a person in the Wake County arrests pictures with his same last name. And possibly about the same age.

    "a tribal tattoo" - like 99% of the people know what that is.

    Unless the person has other people with him, I think silver alerts should be kept for what they were intended. Every person who goes missing shouldn't be given a silver alert. Someone who may be depressed or OD or whatever is not the same as a mentally incapable or elderly person.
