Silver Alert System Designed to Aid in Locating Missing Seniors

At least 10 states have implemented their own missing person notification system for people with some form of mental impairment, namely Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Silver Alerts are similar to Amber Alerts, which are issued by police and broadcast by media outlets and put on Web sites when a child is believed to have been abducted and is in danger.

Indiana is currently considering implementation of the Silver Alert system. Click here to read more about Silver Alert systems across the country.
