RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Tuesday for a Durham woman.

The alert for 32-year-old Shaleta Nichole Bridges was issued in August. Authorities said she was located on Friday.

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.
