    Gray alert for missing troopers.

  • lizard Dec 19, 2007

    “When a person starts walking and sometimes when they have dementia, they'll get something in their mind – maybe they're going back to their home or going back to a play area – and they don't have any idea how fast they were walking,” Harrison said.

    Replace the word "walking" with the word "spending" and then we can have "green alerts" for missing legislators and congressmen.

    As it stands now: Conditions blue, green, yellow, orange, and red for terrorism. Amber for missing children. Silver for missing demented people.

    Can ya'll think of any others that may be necessary? Help me out.

    I'm concerned that with so many "alerts", that people will stop paying them any attention whatsoever.

    So why do they not have a Silver Alert for the gentleman who is missing?

    Durham Dude - At least the signs on 40 will be used for something.
    "Please look out for grey haired woman wondering the streets"

    Don't you mean look out for grey haired woman wondering the streets driving 15 MPH below the speed limit in the left lane with the blinker on?

    If so, I found her this morning on the way to work.

    Perfect timing too as there is another article about a missing senior this morning.

    this will be a great help

    This is a great new law. My grandmother suffers from dementia and it's very hard on the family. I pray no one will have to use it but at least it's available now.
