— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons issued a Silver Alert Monday for a 17-year-old in Durham.

Jalyn D. Hart, is black, stands 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighs approximately 140 pounds and has short black hair and brown eyes.

He was last seen on Fayetteville Road in Durham wearing a black rain jacket, black shirt, blue jeans and black Nike shoes with gold trim.

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.
