Burlington, NC --  A Silver Alert issued for a missing 15-year-old girl from Graham has been canceled.

The Alamance County Sheriff's Office said Anesuisshe "Annie" MakaMaka Kagura was found safe at a home in Burlington Thursday night.

Annie's mother clarified to WFMY News 2 that she was found at her uncle's home; however, she said Annie was staying at a 21-year-old friend's home in Burlington while she was missing. Annie went to her uncle's home. Within hours of her arrival Annie's uncle alerted her mom and authorities to Annie's presence. 

Annie's Silver Alert was issued last week.

Officers said Annie may have a cognitive impairment and believed she might have been heading for Canada to meet her father. After their initial investigation, deputies said there was no sign of a struggle where she was last seen in her home on Trollinger Road in Graham.

Annie's mother told WFMY News 2 her daughter spent Thursday night in Alamance Regional Hospital for evaluations and is expected to remain there for several days.
