— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons issued a Silver Alert Monday evening for a woman missing in Rocky Mount.

Genell Streeter, 38, is black, stands 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 130 pounds. She has medium black hair and brown eyes and was last seen on Park Avenue in Rocky Mount wearing a black overcoat and blue jeans.

A photo of Streeter wasn't immediately available Monday evening.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts should call the Rocky Mount Police Department at 252-972-1411.

Developed in 2007, Silver Alert is a system to quickly notify 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.
