New Mexico considering Silver Alert program
From the Albuquerque Journal:
Gov. Susana Martinez is looking to apparent state Rep.-elect Paul Pacheco — who faces a required recount of his razor-thin lead over Democratic opponent Marci Blaze — to push legislation that would expand use of statewide missing person alerts for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease.
If approved by the state Legislature, the new alert system would mirror the city of Albuquerque’s “Silver Alert,” which widely distributes information about a missing senior with Alzheimer’s or dementia who wandered away from home and may not be able to find his or her way home.
