RALEIGH, N.C. — A Silver Alert for a missing Wake County woman was canceled around midnight Saturday.

It's not clear if Young Symi Canup, 70, had been found. The alert for her was issued earlier Saturday night.

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.
