RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A Silver Alert was canceled Friday afternoon after a 66-year-old Durham man last seen at Carter-Finley Stadium Thursday night was found in downtown Raleigh.

Robert Duke Miles Jr. of Durham was believed to be suffering from dementia or some other cognitive impairment, according to the North Carolina Center for Missing Persons.
