Raleigh, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Tuesday for a missing Raleigh woman.
Carmen Veronica Mouzon, 63, who was reported missing Dec. 27, was found safe, a police department spokesman said. He did not elaborate.
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.
