— Police said a missing 59-year-old Fayetteville woman was located Monday afternoon. 

A Silver Alert was issued earlier Monday for Janice Faye Jones, who went missing from Karen Lakes Apartments on Sardonyx Road.

That alert has been canceled. 

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert is a system to quickly notify the public about missing endangered adults who suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments.

It also allows caregivers and nursing homes to report a person missing. In the past, only a family member could report an adult missing.
