RALEIGH, N.C. — The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert Friday for Jahmaiel Antoine Andrews, 27.

Further details weren't released.

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system 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.
