— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons has canceled a Silver Alert for a Rocky Mount woman.

The alert was issued Monday for Candy Mae Bullock. Police said Bullock was found safe on Thursday.

Developed in 2007, Silver Alert is a system that 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.
