The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons has cancelled a Silver Alert for 11-year-old Kayla Brown at the request of the Durham County Sheriff's Office.

The N.C. Center for Missing Persons has issued a Silver Alert for a missing endangered girl, Kayla Brown.

Officials say citizens are asked to be on the lookout for Brown, who is just 11 years old. WRAL reports Brown has a medical condition.

Anyone with information about Kayla Brown should call the Durham County Sheriff's Office at (919)560-0900.

Officials say Brown is white, weighs 130 pounds, is 5'6", has brown hair, blue eyes and numerous earrings. They say she was last wearing a white, black and grey jacket with a fur-lined hood and blue jeans.

She was reported missing from the Durham School of Arts. Reports indicate she was last seen getting on a bus at a residential area, at the intersection of Genesse and Bramble.

While Amber Alerts are traditionally issued for children and Silver Alerts are traditionally issued for adults, a Silver Alert can be issued for a child who is endangered but does not meet the criteria for an amber alert.

Criteria for a Silver Alert, according to a state website:

The person is believed to be suffering from dementia or other cognitive impairment- regardless of age.

The person is believed to be missing – regardless of circumstance.

A legal custodian of the missing person has submitted a missing person's report to the local law enforcement agency where the person went missing.

Law enforcement reports the incident to the NC Center for Missing Persons.
