Silver Alert

— The N.C. Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Thursday for Roger Wade Ayscue.

Ayscue, 40, who was last seen in July, was officially reported missing in September when the Franklin County Sheriff's Office posted a $5,000 reward for information about him.

The sheriff's office said Ayscue hasn't been found, and they are treating his disappearance as a missing person case. The Silver Alert was canceled because they automatically expire after 90 days, authorities said.

Ayscue, called "Kojak" by friends, is white with blond hair and blue eyes. He is 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing about 197 pounds. He was last seen at 290 Collie Road in Castalia.
