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

Edward Thomas Jones, who is believed to be suffering from dementia or some other cognitive impairment, was reported missing from 5404 Holland Farms Ways.

The 62-year-old man was found Monday.

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.
