Silver Alert

— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled its Silver Alert Wednesday evening for a 57-year-old Lumberton man who is believed to be cognitively impaired.

The alert for Felix Theodore "Ted" Hardgraves, who was last seen at 785 Oakridge Boulevard, was issued shortly after 7 p.m.

No information was released about why the alert was canceled or whether Hardgraves was found safe.

Developed in 2007, the Silver Alert systems quickly notifies the public about missing, endangered people who have cognitive impairments. It also allows caregivers and nursing homes to report a person missing. In the past, only a family member could report an adult missing.
