— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Wednesday for a Cary man.

The alert for 32-year-old Jeremy Brendan Cid was issued Monday. 

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.
