Devices help find missing kids, at-risk adults

ST. GEORGE – Children with autism and adults who have Down syndrome or Alzheimer’s have a tendency to wander off and get lost.

They might be as close as 50 yards or as far as a mile away from where they were last seen, St. George Police Officer Derek Lewis said. As a result, St. George Police have conducted searches for as long as eight hours, sometimes going door-to-door.

Lewis, a 10-year veteran of the police department, successfully applied for two grants to obtain two devices, called receivers, as well as for 10 wristbands that emit sounds that the receivers can track.
