Silver Alert

— A Silver Alert for a missing Durham woman was canceled Thursday morning after she was found unharmed.

Angela Evans, 46, was reported missing Wednesday from a home on Holloway Street in Durham.

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.
