A Silver Alert for Cory Deshaun Williams was canceled on Tuesday.

The alert was issued for the 34-year-old earlier Tuesday. Police said Henderson is doing fine.

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.
