    Admiral......... you should check the guidelines for NC silver alerts. It is not an age specific thing; it's for anyone who has dementia or a cognitive impairment. The system is not being abused. If we all see it and read it then it's doing it's job!!

    I think it is funny that they put blue haired alerts out for 15 year old kids, when it was designed for 70 adults.

    Funny how they have learned to abuse the system.

    I feel for these families and hope for the safe return of their loved one, but I must admit I'm getting pretty numb to the daily Silver Alerts ... sad, but true.

    bs101fly - "GOSH do we have to put out a blue hair alert every time one of them goes missing????"

    Shame on you! These people are in need just like anyone dealing with any other infliction.

    I pray that none of your family members ever faces this (cause what goes around surely does come around), and I pray they find this woman soon and well.

    God bless.

    bs101fly, karma. Ever heard of that word? I sure do hope you never have a family member that developes one of theses diseases. Wait two weeks? We'll let you wander around that long. Hope you don't get hungry or need medications.

    Good flippin' GOSH do we have to put out a blue hair alert every time one of them goes missing????
    9 out of 10 times they stumble back into reality and it's all over.
    can we at least set a 2 week waiting period before we bore the public with something that almost ALWAYS is never ANYTHING???
