RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons has canceled a Silver Alert for a missing Raleigh woman after she was found safe at the Durham Rescue Mission.

Dianna Lynn Davis, who is believed to be suffering from dementia or some other cognitive impairment, was reported missing Sunday from a group home at 7901 Old Stage Road.

She was found safe a few hours later.

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.
