Silver Alert

— Authorities have canceled a Silver Alert issued Friday evening for a missing Greenville woman.

Police said that Robena Gorham, 61, was found safe.

Developed in 2007, Silver Alert is a system to quickly notify 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.
