Police said  a Silver Alert issued early Thursday morning for an elderly woman in North Carolina was canceled after she was found safe.

According to officials with the Highland Police Department, 74-year-old Charlotte Merry had been last seen around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday near Morewood Circle.

Police actively searched from about 4 p.m. and called off the search late Wednesday night. Officials said the search would pick up again Thursday morning.
