    they sure issue and then cancel alot of Silver Alerts down in that area....!!! And before anyone says it, "the person isn't always found when it's cancelled"....

    An APB of injury to self or others would be more appropriate here than a silver alert.

    A black man with green eyes, an arm that doesn't move and no front teeth - should be easy to spot.
