Hillsborough, N.C. — The Orange County Sheriff's Office suspended its search Monday night for a missing 87-year-old Hillsborough man.
Howard Chester Duncan was found safe, authorities said. The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled its Silver Alert for him shortly before 10 p.m. – about 2 hours after it was issued.
Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system quickly notifies the public about missing endangered people who suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments.
