Silver Alert

— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled a Silver Alert on Tuesday for a missing Raleigh woman.

The alert was issued earlier Tuesday for 54-year-old Catherine Marvette Little.

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert system quickly notifies the public about missing endangered adults who suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairments.

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