A Silver Alert was issued Tuesday evening for Sarah Mae Smith, 15, who was last seen at 7:15 a.m. at Heritage, the alert press release said. Police are still searching for Smith, who suffers from a cognitive impairment, said town of Wake Forest spokesman Bill Crabtree.
Before Smith disappeared, she was wearing a taupe sweater that extends below her hip, a blue short-sleeve shirt, white denim pants and black crossover casual shoes, the release said. She was wearing several rings on her fingers and a black and white leather wristband on one of her wrists.
Smith also has a small scar on the top of her left thigh, the release said.
