— The state has canceled a Silver Alert for a Raleigh man reported missing from his Sweetbrook Lane home Friday afternoon.

Veoliga “Victor” Millsap, 80, of 9021 Sweetbrook Lane, was located Friday evening and was doing okay, officials said.

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.
