SPOTSYLVANIA, VA (WWBT) -

Virginia State Police have canceled a senior alert after a Spotsylvania 72-year-old was found safe.

Police issued the alert Wednesday afternoon, because Virginia Dale Alford hadn't been seen in about 24 hours.

Police believe she walked away from her home and were concerned because she suffers from a cognitive impairment and they worried her health and safety may be in danger.

However, just an hour after the alert police say Alford was found.
