— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Friday for a Butner woman who went missing Thursday.

Authorities did not release any information about where Delia Brady Peed, 68, was found or what her condition was.

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.
