Silver Alert

— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons has canceled a Silver Alert for a missing endangered man.

Dan L. Frazier, who is believed to be suffering from dementia or some other cognitive impairment, was reported missing Monday from his Cedar Terrace Road house in northern Chatham County.

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.
