Sen Coons Introduces National Silver Alert

Dec 17, 2013 -- 5:38pm

Legislation has been introduced in Washington by Senator Chris Coons that would help law enforcement to locate missing adults and senior citizens with dementia.  The National Silver Alert Act is modeled after the Amber Alert system for abducted children and creates a nationwide network for missing seniors with federal coordination and assistance to local and state law enforcement agencies.  It will be similar to the Gold Alert that’s been in place in Delaware since 2008.
