Georgia: Mattie’s Call tracks missing seniors, similar to Silver Alert
Law enforcement in Georgia are using the latest technology from Project Lifesaver to help them find missing seniors.
ATLANTA — “Mattie’s Call” is an alert system for missing disabled or elderly persons. In a recent 24 hour period, two alerts were put out by Clayton County Police and Marietta Police. It seems at times that law enforcement agencies are alerting news agencies like 11 Alive News almost on a daily basis.
The Atlanta Police Department has a program called “Project Lifesaver” that is limiting some of those alerts. The program is provided to Alzheimer’s patients in the city who have a tendency to wander off.
