    Silver alerts have 4 criteria, this first is "The person is believed to be suffering from dementia or other cognitive impairment- regardless of age".

    Also, it's important to note that Amber Alerts refer to children who have been abducted (or at possible risk of danger/death), not simply missing.

    Correct if I am wrong, but wouldn't this be an "Amber Alert" since this was not an adult that was missing but of a 11yo boy??
