Enfield, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert for a missing Enfield woman early Sunday after she was found safe by local authorities.
Sandra Sue King, 52, was reported missing Friday afternoon.
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.
