Silver Alert

— Authorities were searching Saturday for a missing 16-year-old Raleigh girl who is believed to be cognitively impaired.

The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons issued a Silver Alert for Reon Stephens around 7:15 p.m. She was last seen at 8909 Sauls Road, authorities said. 

Stephens is black and has short brown hair. She was last seen wearing black leggings with black stripes or jean shorts. 

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Deputy Faucett at 919-856-6911. 

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.
