— A Silver Alert has been canceled for a missing Raleigh woman.

Debra Lynn Groves, 19,  was last seen Monday at 5703 Beachwater Drive.

She was found unharmed near Triangle Town Cente Tuesday evening, police 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.
