PITTSBORO, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert on Thursday for a Pittsboro woman.

The alert was issued on Wednesday for 30-year-old Jennifer Christine Stumpf.

Developed in 2007, Silver Alert is a system that quickly notifies 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.
