— Authorities canceled a Silver Alert for a missing Clayton man early Friday.

No foul play is suspected.

An alert for Beavers was issued Aug. 13.

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.
