— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons has canceled a Silver Alert issued Saturday evening for a missing Rocky Mount man.

The alert for Everette Lane House, 78, was canceled around 1 a.m. Sunday after he was found safe.

House had last been seen at 3313 Woodlawn Road.

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.
