Silver Alert

— At the request of the Wake County sheriff, the N.C. Center for Missing Persons has cancelled the Silver Alert for Levora Bivens Lytle.

A Sliver Alert was issued for Lytle Friday morning.

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system notifies the public about missing endangered adults who suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments, such as Alzheimer's disease.

It allows caregivers and nursing homes to report a person missing. In the past, only a family member could report an adult missing.
