Silver Alert

— Authorities on Tuesday canceled a Silver Alert issued Oct. 19 for a Rockingham County man.

The state Missing Persons Center said it was canceling the alert for Dallas Gray Dunlap, 76, of Stoneville, at the request of the Stoneville Police Department. It gave no other details.

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.
