INDIANAPOLIS — A statewide Silver Alert for a woman missing from Indianapolis' south side has been canceled.

IMPD said Sunday evening that 63-year-old Jeanetta Harvey has been located. No other information was provided, but the department thanked the Johnson County Sheriff's Office and Edinburgh Police Department, as well as the community, in announcing Harvey had been found.

Harvey was last seen on at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 2, in the 4300 block of Madison Avenue, near East Hanna Avenue, driving her blue 2014 Ford F-150 truck with Indiana license plate FD1659.

Amber Alert vs. Silver Alert: What's the difference?

There are specific standards a person's disappearance must meet in order for police to declare an Amber Alert or a Silver Alert.                                        

Amber Alerts are for children under the age of 18 who are believed to have been abducted and in danger. Police also need to have information about a suspect and their car to issue an Amber Alert.                                       

Silver Alerts are for missing and endangered adults or children. They are much more common for missing people. It was not until last year when the standards for Silver Alerts were expanded to include children.      

In both situations, these alerts must be issued by police.
