Silver Alert

— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Friday afternoon for a missing Morrisville man.

Brian Andrew Fayle, 20, was reported missing earlier in the day but was found safe. Authorities declined to say where Fayle was found.

Developed in 2007, Silver Alert is a system to 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.
