RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons has canceled a Silver Alert for a missing Pinehurst man.
The alert was issued Monday for 82-year-old Isaac Benton.
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.
