WADESBORO — A Silver Alert has been cancelled after a man missing for a week was found dead in a neighboring county.

According to the Anson County Sheriff’s Office, the body of 86-year-old James Rogers Hannah was found by a city worker Tuesday morning on a dead-end road in Monroe.

Deputies say Hannah’s body has been sent to the medical examiner’s office to determine an official cause of death.

The Silver Alert was issued at 12:51 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 22 by the N.C. Center for Missing Persons, although Hannah was reportedly last seen on Winfree Road in Wadesboro the prior Monday, Aug. 19.

An email from the NCCMP was sent just after 7 a.m. Thursday cancelling the Silver Alert. However, the sheriff’s office confirmed at the time that Hannah was still missing.
