Cary, N.C. — Cary police found a missing 72-year-old man safe Tuesday morning about 11 hours after he went missing from Waldo Street.
The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert issued for Livingston Wiley about 10:40 a.m.
Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system quickly notifies the public about missing endangered people 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.
