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

Ashely Dion Knight, who is believed to be suffering from dementia or some other cognitive impairment, was reported missing Wednesday from 3401 Raleigh Road Parkway.

The alert was canceled late Wednesday.

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.
