What Exactly is Silver Alert?

An American public notice system called a “Silver Alert” is used to help find missing persons, especially elderly people with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, or other mental illnesses.

Silver Alerts disseminate information about missing people using a variety of media venues, including commercial radio stations, television stations, and cable television. Silver Alerts in certain jurisdictions also employ variable-message signs on highways to notify motorists to be on the lookout for missing seniors. When a missing person is believed to have gone missing on foot, Silver Alerts have employed Return 911 or different emergency warning systems to alert nearby neighbors about the neighborhood around the missing person’s last known location. Silver Alerts may also be used to locate missing children who are not in danger or have been kidnapped.

Silver Alert supporters cite the United States expanding older population as justification for funding new programs to find missing elders. Six out of every ten dementia patients will walk off at least once. If not found within 24 hours, as many as fifty percent of traveling seniors with dementia risk suffering severe harm or dying away.
