Silver Alert

— A 76-year-old Goldsboro man was found unharmed Saturday, about a day after authorities issued a Silver Alert for him.

The alert for James Franklin Pace, who has a cognitive impairment, first went out Friday morning.

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system quickly notifies 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.
