Silver Alert

— The N.C. Center for Missing Persons has canceled a Silver Alert for Gregory D. Brown of Durham.

Brown, 53, was reported missing Saturday from 3812 Booker Road in Durham.

Developed in 2007, Silver Alert is a system that quickly notifies 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.
