— Authorities have canceled a Silver Alert issued late Thursday morning for a Franklin County man.

James Allen "Nat" Solomon, 80, had last been seen Wednesday in Henderson when the alert was issued.

Authorities typically do not provide further information about subjects of Silver Alerts when they are found.

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.
