Silver Alert

— A Silver Alert issued for an 88-year-old Garner man was canceled on Thursday.

The alert was issued earlier this week for James Story Moon.

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.
