OLYMPIA, Wash – Washington state law enforcement agencies have a new tool when searching for missing senior citizens suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s, or other mental disabilities.
Silver Alerts will appear on highway reader boards just like Amber Alerts for children. The message specifically states it’s a Silver Alert followed by the missing senior citizen’s car description and license plate number.
Unlike Amber Alerts, Silver Alerts will not show up on TV screens and there will be no text messages or emails unless you sign up to receive Silver Alerts
