I was driving on the highway recently and saw an advisory for a Silver Alert, and I will be completely honest and say that I did not know what a Silver Alert was. I asked around and no-one I know had ever heard of a Silver Alert either, so I decided that I would just give everyone a little heads up on what this is!
We have all heard of Amber Alerts and know they refer to missing children, well a Silver Alert refers to missing adults, usually seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other mental disabilities. So if you see or hear about a Silver Alert on your local radio, please take a moment to listen to the information being broadcast, or make a note of the information you are reading on the highway. With many pairs of eyes looking for someone it may well save a life.
